Virtual Bus Trip: Visit the Home of Alexander Hamilton

Hamilton Grange


Wednesday, June 24, 2020.

We can’t take bus trips right now but, thanks to the internet, we can explore the world from the comfort of our homes. Every Wednesday, we’re presenting a series of links to cultural institutions in Chicago and beyond. Today we’ll visit the home of Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton.

Hamilton commissioned architect John McComb Jr. to design a Federal style country home on a sprawling 32 acre estate in upper Manhattan. This house was completed in 1802 and named “The Grange” after the Hamilton family’s ancestral home in Scotland, but served as Hamilton’s home for only two years before his death resulting from his duel with Aaron Burr.

Take a video tour of Hamilton’s Grange with Jordan Fisher from the Broadway musical Hamilton, explore historic photos of the home, watch a video on moving the house, then download or stream the musical’s original cast recording on Hoopla Digital.
