The Morris Jumel Mansion dates back to 1765 when it was first built as a summer home for British Colonel Roger Morris, his wife, Mary Philipse, and their family. Throughout the years, many great leaders have stepped foot inside the Morris-Jumel Mansion including Alexander Hamilton, John Adams, Henry Knox and George Washington himself.

Learn more about the history of the house, its architecture, garden, and grounds in this 30 minute outdoor overview. After this 30 minute orientation, the remainder of the tour will be self guided and take place inside the mansion.

MJM educator Jessica Colon will introduce visitors to the exciting history and beautiful grounds surrounding Morris-Jumel Mansion. Free with registration
