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.

We came up here as we heard that it had a Junior Ranger Program and by experience, we have learned that this program motivates us to go to some very interesting places. So we took the subway up to Harlem and quickly found Hamilton Grange. It was interesting and Alexander Hamilton was a very interesting person - as a person... More

This historic house certainly doesn't rank among the usual top-attractions in New York City and it is a bit out of the way. But for the American History enthusiast I think it is really a very worthwhile visit. i had wanted to visit for some time and this time round combined it with a few other things out of the... More

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
