Alexander Hamilton and Trinity Church

Many people know Alexander Hamilton as the guy on the ten dollar bill, or the namesake and main character of the smash hit Broadway play. Some people even know that his final resting place is Trinity Church, where he lies interred beneath a beautiful marble monument.

But did you know that Hamilton's involvement with Trinity goes far beyond the churchyard? In his life, he was an active and vital part of the Trinity community. He also rented a pew in the church, although his wife Eliza and the children attended worship more regularly than he did. Watch a video tour to learn more about Hamilton’s life at Trinity Church.
