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.

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

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.

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
