The Trinity Church Wall Street campus also includes two other places of historical burial, not to be confused with the uptown cemetery—the Trinity Church churchyard and the St. Paul's Chapel churchyard in downtown Manhattan. Alexander Hamilton, Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton, Angelica Schuyler Church, Hercules Mulligan, and Philip Hamilton are buried in the downtown Trinity Churchyard at Broadway and Wall Street along with other notable people from New York City's history. The Trinity Church and St. Paul's Chapel churchyards are not active places of burial.
