When Roger Morris and his wife, Mary Philipse Morris, built the northern Manhattan mansion in 1765, it was a country retreat. During the American Revolution, General Washington transformed the house into a headquarters. And afterward it was used as an inn, and then again as a rural residence. Today Morris-Jumel Mansion Museum—Manhattan's oldest (remaining) residence, and one of the nation’s foremost historic houses—strives to empower audiences to create relevant contemporary connections to the histories of the Mansion, its collections, the land, and its people, past and present.
