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.

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.

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

The house is amazing and relocated in a good location where it is out in the open. The exhibits are fairly new and up to date with the history of Alexander Hamilton. There were lots of tourists and many of the books were sold out, no doubt to the popularity of the new Broadway show. Definitely must come here if... More

This building in upper Harlem in New York City is the home built by Alexander Hamilton upon what was a huge plot of land that stretched from the Hudson to Harlem Rivers. Hamilton, one of our country's founding fathers left for us a house not only about him, but also about the culture and living conditions of the late 18th... More

Wonderful site to visit, can take the A train to 145st and walk to Nicholas Park, where the Hamilton House now resides. Worthwhile to watch the 15 minute video to get an executive summary of Hamilton and the impact on our current financial and government and walk around neighborhood to see where the original home built in 1802 was, see...

First, the amazing story of how this home was moved and restored is well told on the tour. The house is beautifully restored and the docent we had on our tour was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the house, Hamilton and history and it showed in her presentation. Nice gift shop. Yet, one more reason our National Park Service deserves a... More

The only home Hamilton ever owned, now moved to the northern end of St. Nicholas Park (141st.). Take the A, B or C lines north to the 145th station, and once on the street stroll north past (or through) St. Nicholas Park to 141st, turn left and you are there in half a block. A free experience, the home is... More

Nymetropolitans, General Manager at Hamilton Grange National Memorial, responded to this review

Thanks for sharing! One clarification: Hamilton WAS eligible to be President. The Constitution allows for anyone who was a citizen at the time it was ratified to be elected, and native-born thereafter. Who knows what might have happened had Burr's shot not been fatal. More
