Albert Gallatin was the longest-serving Secretary of the Treasury, serving 13 years. He was born in Geneva, Switzerland, and traveled to Boston, Massachusetts at the age of 19. Two years after his arrival, he found a job at Harvard College tutoring French. He used the money he made to purchase 370 acres of land in Pennsylvania which he named Friendship Hill. He and his family lived at Friendship Hill from 1784 to 1821, when he had to sell the land because of economic troubles. Featured on our pin is a sunny image of Gallatin’s countryside home, outlined in gold. Pin this to a jacket, hat, vest, or the like to symbolize Albert Gallatin’s accomplishments.
