The Federal-style home of Alexander Hamilton (1755–1804)—a Founding Father of the United States, first Secretary of the Treasury, founder of the New York Post newspaper (which still publishes a daily edition today) and organizer of The Bank of New York—is in Harlem’s Saint Nicholas Park. The property, which is named for Hamilton’s father’s ancestral home in Scotland, includes a visitor center, permanent exhibits relating to Hamilton’s life and legacy, historically furnished rooms and landscaped grounds.
