Revolutionary War Era Historic Home in NYC
This National Historic Landmark was erected in 1765 by the Morris family as a summer country house. The mansion has been involved in many historically important events including being integral during the Battle of Harlem Heights in the American Revolutionary War where it headquartered General George Washington.
The Morris-Jumel Mansion has been operating as a museum for over 100 years and has a permanent exhibition of rooms furnished in the styles of several time periods. Short term exhibitions which highlight different aspects of history are often shown at this historic home in New York City. The museum is open Wednesday through Sunday.
