Washington Heights / Inwood
Manhattan's oldest surviving house, the Morris-Jumel Mansion atop Harlem Heights, is a monument to colonial grandeur.
Built in 1765 by the British Colonel Roger Morris, Morris-Jumel Mansion is Manhattan’s oldest house. Today it’s a national landmark and museum, boasting eight beautifully appointed 18th- and 19th-century period rooms, including the former bedroom and war office of George Washington, who in 1776 used the Mansion as a headquarters during the Battle of New York. Open six days a week and offering both self-guided and guided tours, Morris-Jumel Mansion is also an event space, frequently hosting lectures, concerts and art exhibitions.
