Museum of American Finance

Recommendation by Lemi

Hamilton established the Bank of New York, the city’s first. Where it once stood, the Museum of American Finance now proudly celebrates the nation’s financial history and those who helped write it. The Hamilton Room displays the statesman’s important documents and published works. Among many things, he envisioned the financial system, helped establish the U.S. Dollar and the U.S. Mint, and founded the first national bank. He was also a member of the Continental Congress, a champion of the Constitution, and author of the Federalist Papers (of which he wrote 51 essays in 6 months out of the entire 85-essay work). He was the very first U.S. Secretary of Treasury, and ultimately, the youngest Founding Father. The song that sums this up best? You already know, “Non-Stop!”
