The oldest house in Manhattan, this mansion was erected in 1765, and was the site of two marquee historic events. General George Washington requisitioned the house after the disastrous Battle of Brooklyn, and made it his campaign HQ for four weeks, much to the chagrin of the Loyalist Morris family (the owners). And Eliza Jumel, a later owner, married disgraced former Vice President Aaron Burr in the parlor here. Their marriage was a disaster, and ended a year after it was begun; Burr passed away on the day the divorce was issued. Serious history fans will enjoy a visit, which includes a look-see around a historic kitchen, some original furnishings, and a lovely sunken garden. Others can skip this one.
