Hamilton Grange National Memorial
Hamilton Grange National Memorial Review
Founding father Alexander Hamilton and his wife raised eight kids in this Federal-style country home, which he called his "sweet project." Located on Hamilton's 32 acres, the Grange, named after his father's childhood home in Scotland, has moved three times since it was built in 1802. It now stands in St. Nicholas Park and offers a lesson in Hamilton's life, from his illegitimate birth in the West Indies and his appointment as the nation's first Secretary of Treasury to his authoring of The Federalist Papers and his death following a duel with Vice President Aaron Burr. The house's ground floor, formerly servants quarters, hosts an interactive exhibit that includes a short film on Hamilton's life. Upstairs a parlor, study, dining room, and two guest rooms are open for viewing; notice the beautiful piano, which belonged to his daughter Angelica.
