Attraction of the Week – Morris-Jumel Mansion
It’s no surprise that the oldest house in Manhattan has many stories to tell. Among them is the fact that none other than General George Washington used it as his temporary headquarters in the fall of 1776.
The mansion was built in 1765 by British military officer Roger Morris, having thus effectively served as headquarters for both sides of the American Revolution.
Today the well-preserved building welcomes visitors and history buffs dazzling them with stories and lovely interiors, as well as temporary exhibits and events.
Visit the Morris-Jumel Mansion for free with your New York Pass, and explore New York City history through genuine artifacts and stories told by Manhattan’s oldest building.
Morris-Jumel Mansion is located in Harlem at 160th St. and St. Nicolas Avenue and is open Wednesday – Sunday, 10 am – 4 pm.
