Description

This house “was built in 1765 by Roger Morris, a British military officer,[2] and served as a headquarters for both sides in the American Revolution” (wikipedia). It was declared a national landmark in 1961 and is now a house museum. The WPA photos pictured here show that the Jumel mansion was restored with New Deal assistance in the 1930s.
