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.
