Hamilton Grange National Memorial is the home of famed statesman on the 10$ bill, Alexander Hamilton. It was built in 1802, and unfortunately Hamilton only lived in the house for two years after he lost that fateful duel against Mr. Aaron Burr in 1804. In 1889, the home was moved to 287 Convent Avenue in order to conform to Manhattan's street grid, however the grange was moved again in 2006 to escape its claustrophobic confines on this avenue and to restore its original accoutrements. It now sits at 426 W. 141st St. (in St. Nicholas Park) and has been designated as a National Historic Landmark. People today can see the first floor of the house and learn more about the early 19th Century in the visitor's center.
