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.

The house would have an interesting history of its own, having to be moved twice. Yes, actually moving the entire building from one spot to another. The first time was around 1895, and the second time was in 2008, to its current location in St. Nicholas Park. And re-opened in 2011 after renovations, it can be seen only on a... More

This is the home of Alexander Hamilton. It's a very interesting but small site in Harlem (upper Manhattan). Best way to get up there is by mass transit. The D-train runs express from Columbus Circle to 125th street, then stops at 135th, then 145th street in less than 10min. Very fast and efficient and a quick and safe 3 min... More

They moved this house from a couple of block away and are still working on it. So the outside looks questionable....but head under the front stairs into the Visitor's Center. The video is a good overview of Hamilton's life and the exhibits in the next room reinforce and elaborate a bit on it. Make sure you get there well before... More

Small museum within St. Nicholas Park that showcases the life and times of Alexander Hamilton. The first floor holds the reception and exhibits. The second floor, which shows the interior of the old house, can only be accessed by booking a free guided tour at the reception.

We spent the weekend in NYC retracing some Hamilton haunts with my "Hamiltweens". On our way home to Boston, we drove here to Hamilton Grange in Harlem. Mid-day on a Saturday, we got easy street parking right near it (lucky? maybe). We did not tour the main house/upstairs because the tour list was full for the next 2 tours and... More

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
