This casemate fort, named in honor of Alexander Hamilton, was constructed during the years 1825 - 1831 as part of the New York Harbor coastal defense network. It is situated on the site of the two earlier earthworks. One was a 1778 British fortification and the other was an 1814 U.S. Army fortification named Fort Lewis. In 1938, the casemate fort was renovated and converted into the Fort Hamilton Officers' Club. The fort received National Historic Landmark status 7 July 1974 and New York City Landmark status on 8 March 1977.
