It’s the biggest hit on Broadway right now, but you don’t have to leave Brooklyn to get a little taste of the world of ‘Hamilton.’
Although Alexander Hamilton is buried in Manhattan, Green-Wood Cemetery is hosting “Hamilton: The Trolley Tour,” which will visit the graves and explore the stories of many of the famous treasury secretary’s relatives and counterparts during the revolution.
Participants will visit the graves of Robert Troup, Hamilton’s roommate at Columbia; Hamilton’s son John, and two of Hamilton’s grandchildren. The tour will also discuss the Battle of Brooklyn (which partly took place on the grounds that now make up Green-Wood) and Hamilton’s role in the overall revolution effort.
The tour will take place Saturday, May 13, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Green-Wood. It costs $20 for members of Green-Wood Cemetery or Brooklyn Historical Society, and $25 for the general public. To purchase tickets or to learn more, click here.
