Elias Boudinot, who would later become President of the Confederation Congress, was one of Alexander Hamilton's first acquaintances upon emigrating from the Caribbean. Hamilton spent a good amount of time at Boxwood Hall during the two semesters he studied at the Academy of Elizabethtown, and became close with the Boudinot family.

The house tour will highlight the recent renovations to the house, including the installment of new period wallpaper and exhibits in the rooms. There will also be a temporary exhibition of Hamilton portraits for this exclusive tour.

Picnic with Washington and Hamilton at the Great Falls

Paterson Great FallsOn July 10, 1778, George Washington and his military entourage, which included Alexander Hamilton and the Marquis de Lafayette, stopped at the Great Falls for a picnic. This was the first time that Alexander Hamilton visited the falls, which he remembered years later when it came time to choose a location for the Society for Establishing Useful Manufactures (SUM) to develop.

Now, exactly 238 years later, the Paterson Great Falls National Historic Park, the Hamilton Partnership for Paterson, and the AHA Society are hosting a similar picnic. Join us to meet "George Washington," "Alexander Hamilton." and others as they revisit the Great Falls.

Starting at noon, bring your own picnic lunch (if you wish) to enjoy the newly-landscaped Mary Ellen Kramer Park above the Great Falls—the most powerful waterfall east of the Mississippi after Niagara Falls. Hamilton Partnership for Paterson President Leonard Zax will give a brief talk titled “The Most Important Picnic in American History" about the Great Falls as the inspiration for Alexander Hamilton to create the world’s first planned city of innovation and launch what we have come to call the American dream. Beginning at 12:45 p.m. you will be able to interact with historical interpreters and learn about the historic picnic of “cold ham, tongue, and tasty biscuits” they enjoyed at the Falls.
