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's a lovely, historical house of one of our founding Fathers, but there are really only three rooms with reproductions of period furniture to see and a basement with modern museum displays. In my opinion, the fact that the house no longer stands in its original location takes away some of the historical charm. It's no Mount Vernon.

Very easy to get too right off the C train at 145th. Hours tours are given on the hour and were first come first serve. The basement of the house is the gift shop, mini museum and movie viewing area. All things you can do while waiting to tour! Lots of history and a beautiful area to walk around!

Our love of Hamilton started with the Broadway musical. This house is about 30 minutes via the 1 subway from Times Square. It's about a 10 to 15 minute walk away from the train station. They have moved this house twice which is fascinating. They have a small museum in the basement with info about Hamilton with a 15 minute... More

For sure you should visit Hamilton Grange and I have 3 tips for anyone who does. 1) Call in advance. The Grange attracts many school groups and you don't want to be shut out because your visit conflicts with the visit of one of the groups. 2) Take a short walk from the Grange to the CCNY campus. It's beautiful... More

Hamilton Grange, which originally sat on a many-acred property on top of a high hill at the peak of Harlem, was Alexander Hamilton's vacation home for a mere two years. But it is the symbol of who he strove to become, the personage to which he aspired over his storied life. It is a symbol of what an immigrant can... More

What a beautiful house in a wonderful setting. I know the house has moved from its original spot but it does give you an idea what it was like in its original setting. My 12 year old daughter loved it.

Nicely done NPS. The Grange is located in St. Nicholas Park between St. Nicholas Ave and W 141st St. As has been stated in other reviews, Hamilton's home has been restored to reflect his vision. The NPS Rangers are very well informed. You get to see the exterior, the beautiful rounds, the main entertaining, dining room, and Hamilton's office with... More

This was an adventure getting there by subway -- we got there just before closing time so we only had time to get our books stamped and walk around the grounds -- it was interesting to look at the big old house and the grounds -- just need to go back and explore more.
