  • Liberty St. Presbyterian Church was an early African church, dating back to the 1830's. It was almost burned during one of the draft riots in 1863. One of its pastors was Henry Highland Garnet, a militant abolitionist from 1842-1848 who gained international fame. (A baby born in the 1859 was named after him and Frederick Douglass - Garnet Douglass Baltimore - who became RPI's first African-American graduate.)
