Hamilton Grange Move Update
Feb 11, 2008

We have received an update on the scheduled move of the Hamilton Grange into St. Nicholas Park. Above is a photo of the excavation area where the Grange will be moving into. If you have any questions please contact us at

Darren Bock, National Parks Service

Work is underway in preparation of moving Hamilton Grange National
Memorial. The demolition of interior finishes in the basement is almost
complete and will continue over the next couple of weeks. Excavations in
St. Nicholas Park have been slowed by weather but should resume in the
coming days.

We reported in the January update that the Grange could move as early as
late March. However, due to the complex nature of the project, we are
currently projecting that the house will not be ready for its historic
journey until late May. The move schedule will remain in flux over the
coming weeks as the technical details and logistics are refined, and we
very much appreciate your patience. As soon as we have specific information
about the move dates, route and anticipated street closures, we will issue
another update.

If you have any questions, please contact the site supervisor, Albert
Atchison, at 212-666-1640.
