Beautiful Early 19th Wood Frame House designed, built and owned by one of our Founding Fathers, Alexander Hamilton. This house has been moved twice in its history from approximately West 143 Street to West 142/143 Street and (hopefully) finally to West 141 (St Nicholas Park). Overall, the guided tour of the Grange takes approximately 1 hr. NPS docents did a... More

This teaches a fascinating story of one of our founding fathers - an interesting lesson for kids (and parents!) about those that shaped our government and economy. The house - and it's relocation - were well done. It's main floor has been redone and is impressive, though id have loved to have seen the second floor as well. We took... More

My wife and I love to visit National Parks whenever we travel. Our trip to New York City was no different. The Hamilton Grange National Memorial tells the story of Alexander Hamilton from his birth in the Caribbean to his death by dueling. The introductory movie and the very knowledgeable park rangers made the visit memorable. The house - although... More

Hamilton Grange National Memorial is a wonderful National Park site in the very top of Manhattan. The basement has interesting exhibits on the life and work of Alexander Hamilton and a good film summarizing his achievements. Access to the house itself is restricted to a guided tour or a self-guided tour window in the afternoon but it is worth working... More

Tucked away in an appealing neighborhood I'd never even heard of (Hamilton Heights), the Hamilton Grange is a gem. The house itself is moderately interesting, well-preserved, and set in a pretty park, near its original location. Learning all about Hamilton was absolutely fascinating; he was instrumental in so many facets of America's founding, even the Coast Guard and Customs. The... More

Alexander Hamilton was one of the more important statesmen of early America. He was the mentor of the "Federalists", who believed in a strong central government - the forerunners of what would eventually become Abraham Lincoln's Republican Party (& a favorite of Lincoln himself). He will always be associated with "big government", but he was also a remarkable man, about... More

A neat spot to discover more about Alexander Hamilton and the country at the turn of the 19th century. As interesting as the house, is the story of how it has been moved twice. The current location is wonderful, nestled inside a park. The tour was well done and the video presentations are also terrific. Worth a stop- another wonderful... More

On the search for some real history in NYC, I decided to make a stop at Hamilton Grange which is now situated in a pleasant park close to its former location. The building really is lovely and it has definitely made a huge difference to its impact, being on a more secluded site. Inside there is a small but very... More

I was really glad to visit this place as it helped me to discover unknown pages of the American history. The house is really small and cozy. It does not feel as a museum at all. The stands on the first floor are very informative. You will be pleasantly surprised with the pictures of Harlem of the Alexander Hamilton time.... More
