Description:
The Alexander Hamilton House at 45 East Main Street in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania, USA is now the site of the Alexander Hamilton Memorial Free Library. The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on June 27, 1980.

The town’s library is not named for Alexander Hamilton the founding father, butfor Alexander Hamilton, a Waynesboro land speculator and wagon maker. Builtaround 1816 by John Bittinger, the Georgian-style 16-room brick house withdual fireplace chimneys was purchased by Waynesboro’s Alexander Hamiltonin 1842. The house remained in the family until the 1943 death of Hamilton’sgranddaughter, Jane Stover Yost, who bequeathed the property to the Borough ofWaynesboro for the town’s first permanent public library. The McCleary home,once located on the east side of the library, was demolished to make way for thelibrary wing added in 1987. The back yard contains a summer kitchen from theHamilton era, as well as old gristmill grinding stones donated by Sammy Stoner.The brick courtyard and flower gardens make the area a charming place to visit.
