Details

Originally built as a country retreat for Roger and Mary Jumel, in the fall of 1776 the mansion was seized by the Continental Army and served as headquarters for George Washington during the Battle of Harlem Heights. British and Hessian commanders occupied the house after Washington`s retreat from New York. In the summer of 1790, Washington returned and dined here with members of his cabinet. The mansion features restored period rooms and interpretations of the mansion`s role during the Revolution.
