Hamilton Fish HouseEdit profile
Hamilton Fish House (also known as Nicholas and Elizabeth Stuyvesant Fish House) is where Hamilton Fish, future Governor and Senator of New York, was born and resided from 1808 to 1838. It is located at 21 Stuyvesant Street, Manhattan, New York City, New York. It was built by Peter Stuyvesant, the great-grandson of Petrus Stuyvesant, around 1804 as a wedding present to his daughter, Elizabeth, and his son-in-law, Nicholas Fish, parents of Hamilton. This is one of five houses owned by the family on their private lane. Peter Stuyvesant hosted General Lafayette as a dinner guest at the house in 1824. The house was designated a New York City landmark in 1965, and was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1975.
