To get to the JNBC from the College Green, cross George Street and walk down Brown Street toward Power Street and the President’s House. When you reach Power Street, cross the street just in front of the President’s House and proceed down the hill on Power Street on the left-hand side. Just next to the President’s House driveway is a black gate in a brick fence. Proceed through the gate and walk down the path through the garden and around the front of the house to the courtyard entrance off of Williams Street.
