On April 21, 2018 I got to go on a tour of the Joseph D. Grant home with the California Pioneers Of Santa Clara. The Joseph D. Grant
Hamilton Road was built in 1876 after the plans to construct the Lick Observatory were approved.
Jospeh D. Grant was the sixth wealthiest individual in California.
While on the tour I met a couple who had seen Martin Luther King Junior father preach at the Ebinizer Church in Atlanta Georgia. I also met another member of the Gilroy and Morgan Hill historical societies who was related to former US Civil War General and President Grant.
