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.

It is worth seeing Hamilton's home for several reasons, but the story behind the home may be as fascinating as the man himself. The grange has moved locations twice prior to finding its new home in 2008, and the story of the move is fascinating. Unlike the enormous and glamorous homes of fellow founding fathers Washington and Jefferson, Hamilton's home... More

As we all know Hamilton was a fascinating man. A visit to Hamilton Grange will extend your knowledge and enable you to walk the grounds where Alexander Hamilton resided in the summer. The hours are 9-5, Wednesday through Sunday, and the home is located on West 141st Street between Convent and St. Nicholas avenues. Try to make time to watch... More

With all of the hoopla surrounding the musical "Hamilton", we decided to go up to what is now a gentrifying Harlem to see the original. This house was built in 1802, and moved twice, finally winding up in its current location, still on Hamilton's original tract, in 1988. It is an extremely well preserved and maintained (thank you National Park... More

This is a National Park Service Historical Memorial Site that has gained added recognition and importance with the advent of the musical “Hamilton”. It is in St. Nicolas Park in west Harlem in New York City and can be reached by the B or C local subway lines. Take one of these to 145th Street and walk south to 141st;... More

In NY for a three-day weekend. Took the time to head up to 141st Street and checked out the Hamilton Grange. Nice National Monument to a founding father that's getting more recognition thanks to the current Broadway hit. Couldn't get tickets to the show but did learn a little about Hamilton with this visit. Worth the trip uptown if you... More

It's a trip up to 141st St but a treat for Hamilton fans. The house was moved twice but the National Parks Service is running it and are currently restoring the side porches. There are a few original artifacts, the most special being a piano that Angelica gave to her niece of the same name. Our tour guide Alex was... More

Hamilton Grange now sits atop a lovely hill in Harlem in St Nicholas Park. (You'll find out it was moved here.) This was the home of Alexander Hamilton. There is a short film about his life downstairs before you visit the period rooms on the second floor. Upstairs, a ranger explains. If you like history, you'll enjoy. Admission is free.

If you are a fan of Hamilton (the musical, the book or the man) you should make a trip to the Grange. Only the first floor is open, but seeing a piece of history is enlightening and fun. A film show the two moves of the entire house is fascinating and was quite a feat. Easy access from public transportation.
