The Morris-Jumel Mansion, 1922. Locals once called the heights here Breakneck Hill after the steep incline overlooking the Harlem River. Roger Morris, a Colonel in the British Army, purchased a large 130-acre tract here, and in 1765 had a large mansion built on the land, which offered commanding views of the Hudson and Harlem Rivers. Morris and his wife, Mary Philipse, who came from an old and influential family, called the mansion Mount Morris. The couple used it as their country estate, previously spending their summers at Philipse Manor Hall in #yonkers(their main residence was a large townhouse on the corner of Whitehall and Stone Street). When George Washington and his troops arrived in New-York to fortify the city against a British attack, the Morrises fled and left their estate behind. Following the #battleofbrooklyn , part of the American force camped in and around #harlem , and a line of earthworks was constructed from Mount Morris, which Washington used as his headquarters, down to McGowan's Pass in what is now #centralpark . The Battle of Harlem Heights was fought just to the southwest in September, and several area taverns, such as the Cross Keys near 165th Street, were used as hospitals. Mount Morris was taken by the British after the Battle of #fortwashingtonin November, and it was used by British and Hessian Generals throughout the remainder of the war. Following the cessation of hostilities, it was seized, passing through several hands before being purchased by merchant Stephen Jumel in 1810, who lived here with his wife Eliza. They restored it to its former glory, and entertained Joseph Bonaparte, Louis Napoleon, and the Marquis de Lafayette here over the years. After Stephen died, Eliza married Aaron Burr. Their marriage was a short one, ending in 1836. Madame Jumel died in 1865, and the house once again passed to several different owners. In 1903, the city bought the #historichouse, and it became a #museumthe next year. It is the oldest surviving house on Manhattan! #nyc#washingtonheights#morrisjumelmansion#colonial#americanrevolution#tbt#history#nychistory#discoveringnyc
