Alexander Hamilton is one of the most celebrated of the country’s Founding Fathers, but the bronze effigy in Harlem’s Hamilton Heights is a magisterial enigma.

For over seven decades, Alexander Hamilton statue had sentineled the entry to The Grange, the former rural estate of its namesake. Hamilton had built the house on Harlem Heights in 1802. But barely two years later, on July 11, 1804, his political rival Aaron Burr dispatched him with a pistol shot during a duel that remains famous to this day.

 

HTB QUICK FACT: 1893, Alexander Hamilton Statue. 141st St. and Covent Ave., outside of St. Luke's Episcopal Church. It was relocated to this sight in 1936.
