There's always something new at Manhattan's oldest house


Everlasting beauty
Built in 1765 by British Colonel Roger Morris as a wedding present for his wife Mary Philipse Morris, the Morris-Jumel Mansion embodies elegance and love in one beautiful structure. Celebrate your nuptials in the country’s first Octagonal Room, our grand portico entrance, or in our manicured garden.  Your ceremony will be all the more memorable when you hold it at Manhattan’s oldest house. We can accommodate weddings of up to 150 guests.

Weddings have been held here for centuries!
Our longest resident Eliza Jumel was married to Vice President Aaron Burr in our front parlor in 1833.    We have a list of preferred caterers  and rental companies but can easily work with your chosen providers.

Convenient and accessible
Morris Jumel Mansion is easy to reach. Located in Washington Heights, it is only 20 minutes from midtown, and there are many nearby eateries, bed & breakfasts, and hotels.
