More than two years after shuttering due to the pandemic, Hamilton Grange National Memorial is finally opening back up.
The historic home of founding father Alexander Hamilton, which closed to visitors in March of 2020, is officially reopening on Sunday, May 29 for self-guided tours.
The following message was posted on the Grange's Facebook page earlier this week:
The National Park Service is pleased to announce that beginning Sunday, May 29th and Monday, May 30th, Hamilton Grange National Memorial will open the historic floor for self-guided tours. The Visitor Center, including the exhibits, theater, park store, and rest rooms remain closed. After Memorial Day weekend, the hours of operation will be 10 a.m. – 12 p.m and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Hours are subject to change. Please visit nps.gov/hagr/planyourvisit for up-do-date hours.
Built by Hamilton in 1802, the charming two-story country estate features one historic floor open to visitors, including a restored parlor, dining room and study.
Moved twice from its original spot a few blocks north, the Grange is now located at 414 W 141st Street between Convent and St. Nicholas Avenues in St. Nicholas Park.
