About
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 area
Address
Neighbourhood: Harlem
As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has played a vital role in the history of New York City. Today, the neighbourhood is as vibrant as ever as new businesses and developments go up next to local institutions. The heart of the neighbourhood is bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and you’ll discover some of the most beautiful blocks in the city, filled with handsome brownstones, soul food restaurants, corner shops, and scenic parks. For a taste of a real New York neighbourhood, it’s hard to top a visit to Harlem.

I brought my teen son and resident Hamilton fan to tour the house and museum. It was so cool to see the reconstructed home and hear about all of the changes the structure endured before preservation. Check the website for operating days and tour times. Sign in for the tour ahead of time in the gift shop. This is a really cool experience for Hamilton fans and history lovers alike!

Fantastic introduction to 1800s NYC. Beautiful grounds and fascinating tales of Hamilton and his family.

According to NYCgo there are only 11 sites remaining in New York with a connection to this US Statesman. As part of a Hamilton themed tour, a visit to the Grange is a must. For those who are neither history nor Broadway buffs, the visit will be short, but it is free and in a part of town that is off the beaten path. Yet take into account the time it takes to get there and back. As others advise, aim your visit to coincide with the house tour. There are 2 films: one on Hamilton and the other on moving the house to its current spot. Both videos are worth seeing (they raised the house and moved it over a church!!).

We really enjoyed our visit to Hamilton Grange. We got here before opening and got in on the first tour. Thank goodness, because a group of Scouts came in and the later tours filled quickly. So I'd suggest maybe showing up earlier in the day. There was some little things to see in the basement, then the tour of the house was very, very short - just three rooms and the entry. Though there wasn't a ton to see, what is there is well done and worth the time.

Hamilton Grange was Alexander Hamilton’s summer home for a few years before his death. As one of the Founding Fathers, Hamilton is a famous figure and the museum at the site gives a good overview of his life and significance. As a historical site, though, there isn’t a whole lot here. It’s a self-guided tour of one floor of the house. Only three rooms are open, and they are recreations filled with mostly replica items. The house itself is nice but not exceptional, and nothing of historical significance happened here. The house itself has been moved (twice!) and is not even in its original location, so it’s not like you can “see what Hamilton saw.” And as the house is located on 141st street, it’s a relatively long trip to visit from Midtown or Lower Manhattan for what is actually here.

Very interesting site. Casual and pleasant guides. Very little of the house open for visit and house needs better upkeep. Visitor center was closed due to staffing shortages. More money needs to go into the site given its historic importance.

Really the National Park Service staff was very personable. The self-guided tour was delightful. This is the third location for this summer home and the site is just wonderful.

The "little place in Harlem" that Alexander Hamilton and Eliza bought. If you're wanting to visit Alexander Hamilton's life after watching the musical, this is one of the spots! The interior has been closed since COVID but you can see a few things from the outside

If your adventurous check out Hamilton’s “little place in Harlem”. My husband and I took the subway from Midtown to check out this landmark. Not really a lot to say but you can at least say you went there if you’re a fan like my husband is. After that we walked down the main street where are the Apollo theater is and continued to central park and walked it all the way through . Don’t recommend going there after dark.

Website says they are open, but that a mask is required. We went to visit the site and it’s closed due to covid. Wish they kept the website up to date.
