Ingersoll's Homes


After leaving Peoria, Ingersoll lived in Washington, D.C. and New York City. Neither residence stands today. His New York brownstone was razed in the 1920s to make room for the Gramercy Park Hotel. Ingersoll's admirers placed a tablet honoring Ingersoll upon the hotel when it opened. In later years, this tablet was vandalized and had to be removed.

In 1988, the Robert Green Ingersoll Memorial Committee placed a new plaque on the exterior of New York's Gramercy Park Hotel, site of his Manhattan residence.
