I would bet most people thing Alexander Hamilton was born in America, or Europe. Instead he was born on Nevis and on this piece of land. The house located here is not where most of the information on A.H. is located. For that you have to go next door, upstairs, where you will find the information on his life. It is my understanding that this and the Museum of Nevis History are being combined and information shifted around so when you read things may have changed.

A house of historical significance. Sits on the edge of the sea and a short walk from the ferry port.

We enjoyed perusing the exhibits in the museum, including archeological discoveries made at a recent dig. The museum has a nice mix of textual information and historic objects and covers the early to modern Nevis history. The museum occupies the original carriage house associated with the house where Hamilton lived, as the house does not survive.

If you like history, you will like this place. Now the Nevis Museum of Natural History, this old stone house is where Alexander Hamilton was born. Adult and children's books, posters, maps, honey, tea, hot sauce, souveniers and local craft items can be bought. The attendant was knowledgeable and the displays interesting. Wish we had had more time to study the displays. Small but interesting.
