The Hamilton Grange is presently closed and will reopen in late 2009. The National Parks service is undertaking a complete restoration of the home now that it has been moved from its old site to nearby St. Nicholas Park. After restoration, the house will again have its front and back porches that were removed when the Grange was brought to its present site in 1889.

Alexander Hamilton commissioned architect John McComb Jr. to design this Federal style country home on a sprawling 32 acre estate in upper Manhattan. Completed in 1802, it is named "The Grange" after the Hamilton family's ancestral home in Scotland. Alas The Grange was inhabited by Hamilton for only two years before he was killed in a duel with Aaron Burr in 1804.

Given the Hamilton Grange's present condition, we recommend you visit some of the other nearby neighborhood attractions. Walk around beautiful Mount Morris and Strivers Row, admire the architecture of the City College campus, and visit the Riverbank State Park, the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture or the Studio Museum in Harlem. Don't miss our walking tour of Historic Harlem!
