Morris-Jumel Mansion

Built by British Col. Roger Morris in 1765, this Palladian-style house was used as Gen. George Washington’s headquarters for five weeks in 1776 during the American Revolution. Following the Revolution, the house was bought by successful merchant Stephen Jumel, whose widow, Eliza, married Aaron Burr, who gained notoriety as the man who challenged Alexander Hamilton to a duel and killed him. Eliza divorced Burr in 1836 and continued to live in the house until her death, at age 90, in 1865. Today, the mansion's rooms are furnished to recreate different periods in its history.
