Info

The Hamilton-Holly House located at 4 St. Mark’s Place in the East Village section of Manhattan is a Federal style townhouse constructed in 1831. The house is 26-foot wide and 3-1/2-storys in height plus a basement level. The house is built of brick in a Flemish bond pattern with white marble at the basement level up till the beginning of the first floor, it has a high front stoop to the main entrance on the left which is characterized by the Baroque style Gibbs surround entrance with triple keystone and vermiculated blocks and long parlor-floor windows, molded pediment lintels and a peaked roof with two dormer windows. There was originally a semi-circular wrought iron balcony at the elevated first floor level.
The entire block of St. Mark’s Place (East 8th Street) between Third and Second Avenues was developed by Thomas E. Davis, a British born real estate developer who built Federal style townhouses on both sides of the street. There are two other surviving townhouses from this development, at 25 St. Mark’s Place and the best preserved of the three, the Daniel LeRoy House at 20 St. Mark’s Place. 4 St. Mark’s Place was sold by Davis in 1833 to Col. Alexander Hamilton, the son of the late Alexander Hamilton former U.S. Secretary of the Treasury. Davis also purchased Alexander Hamilton's estate, The Grange (now called the Hamilton Grange National Memorial) in northern Manhattan, for $25,000 from his widow Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton.
Elizabeth Shuyler Hamilton; her daughter, Eliza Hamilton Holly, and her husband Sidney; and Col. Hamilton and his wife Eliza, along with their nephew Pedro Astacio, lived at this address until 1842.
