Hamilton commissioned architect John McComb Jr. to design a Federal-style country home on a 32-acre estate in upper Manhattan. This house was completed in 1802 and named The Grange after his father's ancestral home in Scotland. Unfortunately, Hamilton was only able to enjoy his home for only two years. On July 11, 1804, Hamilton was fatally wounded in a duel with his personal and political rival Vice President Aaron Burr. Paterson Great Falls National Historic Park During the late 18th century, Alexander Hamilton's vision for industry and manufacturing prompted him to set his sights on Paterson New Jersey. And in so doing, Alexander Hamilton utilized his prodigious insight to fuel industry, manufacturing and promote the financial growth of America. While serving as the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, he decided to puts his full support behind an organization called the Society for the Establishment of Useful Manufacturing (or S.U.M.). Through this organization, Alexander Hamilton had an ambitious plan to stimulate the American economic system through mass manufacturing. His plans provided partial startup funding to S.U.M. through the use of government funded debt. This undertaking would ultimately lead to the production of goods such as paper, cotton and linens, hats and blankets, as well as provide work for laborers.
