History & Culture

Hamilton Grange National Memorial preserves the country home of Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton. In 1801, Hamilton commissioned architect John McComb Jr. to design the Federal-style country home on a 32-acre estate in upper Manhattan. The building was completed in 1802 and named "The Grange" after his father's ancestral home in Scotland. Unfortunately, Hamilton was only able to enjoy his home for two years. On July 11, 1804, Hamilton was fatally wounded in a duel with his personal and political rival Vice President Aaron Burr. Elizabeth, however, continued using the home for 30 years after his death. Today, The Grange provides visitors a glimpse into Hamilton’s personal life, role in establishing the United States, and his contributions to developing New York City.
