During the American Revolutionary War, George Washington lived here. A few years later Eliza Jumel bought it and redecorated it in style Empire. A little bit later the building became the national property.

Today Morris Jumel Mansion is a museum, a gorgeous architectural specimen, revealing the story of the house and some facts about its former owners' lives. Tourists like to make little stops to enjoy exploring the mansion, however, not many of them know about the secrets hidden inside. You may not believe in ghosts, but once you enter the mansion, you feel some spine-chilling vibes.

Changing styles of the decor, changing inhabitants, the Morris Jumel Mansion acquired his peculiar spirit, and probably all these developments led to what we can see now: a place, which is among one of the most haunted in the New York City.
