daddy grace, the new bedford years

"when daddy grace lived in new bedford he painted his huge mansion red, white and blue. The home was on County Street.It was demolished and a school stands on that site. The neighbors were appalled at the color choice. The other mansions on this same street were rehabbed.

Daddy Grace started his church here in New Bedford.It was also red white and blue.. but a brand new church was completed here a few years ago.As a teen the restaurant was our "spot".One of his homes abuts my property and it is a stone mansion bequeathed to his nieces. It sits back on a large piece of land and DWARFS our modest homes."

it sounds like his origional church really was for ALL people.
