Notes

Abstract:
This is an exploration of the Hamilton Grange as the product of a syncretic process involving the mixture of the neoclassical elements in the American Federal period and features associated with the Caribbean. This noteworthy building has been recognized as a significant reminder of the architectural history of the American Federal era. The original design of this structure merged the ideal of the architect, John McComb, Jr. with the architectural imprints of the client, Alexander Hamilton. Considering its relation to Caribbean architecture may expand understanding of Hamilton, McComb, and Federal architecture. The design implications extend to the idea of some scholars that architectural imprints affect both designers and occupants of homes. This study documents diverse personal and architectural influences on the Hamilton Grange and seeks to illustrate these as a case study of the syncretic process.
