Morris Jumel Mansion


Morris-Jumel Mansion, Manhattan's oldest house, was headquarters to Gen.Washington in autumn, 1776. The history of this stately mansion set on a hilltop in 1765 begins with Col. Roger & Mary Phillipse Morris, who built their summer home before the Revolution. After Washington's departure, the Mansion played host to a succession of British & Hessian military leaders, served as an inn for travelers, and finally returned to its role as country house. It was purchased in 1810 by Stephen Jumel for his adored wife Eliza, one of NYC’s most captivating & vibrant personalities. Through Palladian architecture, a Colonial kitchen w/beehive oven & a diverse collection of decorative arts objects, each room of the Morris-Jumel reveals a specific aspect of its history from the 18th to 19th centuries. The Mansion offers community events, educational programs for school children/teachers/adults, a Colonial Garden, & a superb Music Program offering period Baroque music and Jazz in the summer.
