I had read about the history of this home in the press a while back ... The house was, at one point, in major disrepair, tucked in between two buildings and almost bound for a wrecking ball. Thankfully, the Nat'l Park Service took the time and effort to save the home of one of our nations founders - a marvelous piece of history. In addition to the history of Alexander Hamilton and his family, the very knowledgeable ranger related the amazing story/history of the house itself ... The home was literally picked up and moved 2 times ...I don't want to give away all the details - go to the site - it is so worth your time. The rangers were very friendly ... a really nice experience!
