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.

After spending a lot of money on everything in NYC, it is refreshing to visit something that is free! We enjoyed this lovely house and the history behind it. There is a short movie about Hamilton, then a short movie about the Mansion being moved, a tour by a Guide and a small gift shop. We made an after noon... More

It's a long way up to Harlem, but so interesting to see a structure from the 18th century. The subway ride was a breeze and we were able to easily connect to a bus to go to the US Grant Monument. We did not realize how important Alexander Hamilton was to the found of the US government - well worth... More

As an Alexander Hamilton fan, I particularly enjoyed the visit to the Grange. But anyone interested in history or politics would likely enjoy visiting the home. The Grange is the only home that Alexander Hamilton owned, and it does a good job paying homage to this interesting founding father. The U.S. Park Service operates the historic site. The park rangers... More

We went midday on a Sunday. Parking was free, close and easy next to St. Nicholas Park on Broadway. A short walk through a very gentrified neighborhood of ornate brownstones leads to Hamilton's home. It is in its third location since its initial construction. (Check out the website for the company that actually moved it. It is very interesting and... More

Once the home of Alexander Hamilton in West 141 St in Upper Manhattan area. Not a well-known small memorial ran by the US NPS. There is a short film on Hamilton and the Grange, a small exhibit and we did a self-guided tour of the first floor. While the visit was historically interesting, there is not enough effort by NPS...

This is a great...free...activity way up on the upper west side of nyc...manhatten. It was the final home of Alexander Hamilton...just the house, not the current location, but the actual house. Really great story about the house. The ranger program is great, but we failed to complete it...first time ever doing that, but still, kids enjoyed it..8 and 12. They... More

Hamilton Grange is a really neat place to visit. It's incredible that it is such a lovely site in the middle of the city. When walking up to Hamilton Grange the beauty takes your breath away. It's a beautiful yellow color, and the area around it is lovely too. Upon entering, there is a welcome foyer and then the rest... More

Take the subway uptown to 141st and walk a few blocks to St. Nicholas Park where Hamilton's home was recently relocated. The site is part of what was once his 30 acre estate. It's run by the Parks Dept. There's several tours per day. Check dates and times online as it's not open every day. The house is in excellent... More

My family agreed to go on a tour of Hamilton Grange to celebrate my birthday. We arrived at 10:45am for a 11am park ranger-lead tour. It was very interesting and informative -even the 20-minute video in the basement visitors' center was worth the time. I read Alexander Hamilton by Chernow so I really appreciated the concrete items that brought this... More

Arrived on a Sunday. Rangers not very welcoming--just sitting behind the desk or standing upstairs leaning on the wall. How about a "Hi, welcome to Hamilton Grange! Here are the things you can do or learn about Alexander Hamilton"? Not really worth the trip.
