This national memorial managed by the National Park Service was the home of statesman and United States Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. Restored and reopened in 2011, the public can enjoy exhibits on some of Hamilton's achievements and challenges on the ground floor, a brief introductory film on his incredible rise from an orphan in the Caribbean to an indespensible molder of the early nation, and visit the furnished first floor by scheduled tour.

It was a great site. Free and very easy to get around in. Great introduction movie and very nice display scene on the bottom floor. The upstairs is great as well. Must see for History buffs as well as anyone interested in Hamilton himself.

We stumbled upon this National Memorial as we were visiting Grant's Tomb. We were so glad to find this summer home of Alexander Hamilton. He was a vital part of our nation's history and it is nice to know that his heritage has been preserved. This is another national treasure that it is worth visiting.

Visited Hamilton Grange today. Once home of Alexander Hamilton, first sec of treasury, leading revolutionary, and strong advocate of federalism. The homesite is the best part, perched on a hill in Hamilton Heights. The home has two floors of exhibits, the main floor with period furniture and decorations. There are helpful background videos and displays. This is a National Historic... More

We visited New York City the first week of December 2015 and stayed at a "vacation rental" a block from the Hamilton Grange. Had we not been so close, I may not have visited it. Glad I did. The NPS visitor center in the basement of the house has a nice exhibit on Alexander Hamilton and an interesting film. It... More

After visiting Christiansted in St Croix a few years ago, I've been studying up on AH. He's a curious figure in American History. This visit, along with my Trinity Church stop, adds to my quest to understand AH. The house visit was bittersweet, it's nice, but full of period pieces. The few that were actually H's were too far in... More

If you enjoy exploring the lesser explored areas of the city, enjoy NYC or U.S. History, or if you just saw Hamilton the Musical and want to get to know him a little better, the Hamilton Grange House is an interesting, easy, uncrowded place to visit. We fall into all of these categories so this was a good choice. We... More

Alexander Hamilton is a popular guy right now in NYC - with his own musical to boot. His homestead up in Harlem is worth a peek. We took the guided tour - watched the films and really enjoyed seeing the only home Alexander Hamilton ever owned (and only lived in for 2 years before that nasty incident with Aaron Burr... More

Only the first floor is open with a few rooms but worth a visit and totally free. Museum and films in basement. THe house was moved twice and now it's on original property on a wooded setting as it would have been. Only home Hamilton ever built and owned but only lived two more years. Family stayed on.

We ventured excitedly uptown one Sunday eve to visit the famed Hamilton Grange, the only home ever owned by Alexander Hamilton, a key figure in the birth of this country, and the development of our nation's financial system, along many other things. A real American success story, but foolish and prideful enough to die in a duel over some name... More

Interesting place. You learn a lot about one of the lesser known Founding Fathers. This was the only home Hamilton ever owned in the US. There's a museum inside and guided tours. Free. We stopped by on our way uptown to Yankee Stadium
