Welcome to Elizabeth, NJ! While you are with us, we are going to show you the best of what the gateway to the state of New Jersey has to offer. We are history’s best kept secret and we are ready to share a sneak peak with you! Along with tremendous American Revolutionary War history, Elizabeth is full of Alexander Hamilton history. Come discover what you didn’t know, you didn’t know! Elizabeth: It all started here!
Your “Alexander Hamilton Tour” begins at Liberty Hall Museum. Tour the beautiful gardens and walk through history. Inside the museum, see where Alexander Hamilton lived and view authentic American historical artifacts dating back to the 1700s. Liberty Hall Museum brings history to life for guests of all ages to enjoy (even the tours are given in period-aged clothing!) After you’ve walked through history, your tour continues with a delicious lunch experience at one of our cultural restaurants!
After lunch, visit Boxwood Hall, another famous hot-spot-hang-out of Alexander Hamilton. Walk through the historical building and see where Hamilton slept, where George Washington dined on his way to his Presidential Inauguration, and Elias Boudinot lived while he was the President of the Continental Congress.
