With over 200 years of history preserved in its walls, the Morris-jumel mansion celebrates New York like no other place in the city. The house itself dates back to 1765 and was originally designed in true Palladian style. The place was later bought by Stephen Jumel and re-designed by his wife Eliza Jumel to embrace Federal styled elements with classic Georgian interiors.
The story of the house is incomplete without the story of Eliza who upon the death of her husband Stephen married ex-vice president Aaron Burr in the parlor of this very home. She later divorced Aaron Burr and was known to be very eccentric towards the end of her life. The mansion oozes her personality more than anyone else’s and even today, the sheer history behind the place, is hard to ignore. Throughout its past, the place has hosted some of the most iconic figures in American history including Thomas Jefferson, John Quincy Adams and Alexander Hamilton among others.
Do observe the fine furnishing that make the soul of the place and travel back in time as you see the personal artifacts belonging to Roger Morris, George Washington, Eliza Jumel and Aaron Burr.

Phenomenal space with a fascinating history! They also offer 'ghost tours' more themed around history. Had a wonderful time checking this place out and the staff was very knowledgeable.
If you feel like going back in time for a couple of hours then this is the place for you. Morris-Jumel Mansion sits high atop Manhattan. The grounds have beautiful flowers and herbs. Plus there are strawberries and cherries that you can pick. Take only a few at a time. They are also have great events. Like wine tasting and plays.
It's a beautiful Mansion and well-kept place. It's one of the oldest standing houses and with a lot of history, still standing in Washington Heights! I love that they host special events like tea party's and many more.
An amazing hidden NYC gem! I live in the neighborhood and stumbled upon this quiet little garden and mansion one evening while walking. It's currently under renovation, but I'm looking forward to attending an event or tour to check out the interior. The surrounding gardens are beautiful.
I went there the other day. Not really worth the admission price. Not to much to see as far as the old furniture and beds. The building is interesting. They had some other exhibit about a carton characterization of the Adams Family. Didn't understand that... What I did find interesting is the little garden areas around the Mansion . That was very nice and quiet. Great to walk around and sit. Take some pictures etc. That you dont need to pay! It's a quiet little corner of upper Manhattan. The birds chirping in the morning where overridden by the occasional Jet plane over head. Check out my YouTube Channel NYC Traveler to see a short video of this trip as well as other museums in NYC.
