Weekday Urban Sketchers at Morris Jumel Mansion
Take a step back in history when George Washington was engaged in the Battle of Brooklyn and there was a clear line of sight from northern Manhattan to the battery. Hard as it is to believe that fact put this house "on the map" as a strategic position in the Revolutionary War.
Join us as we sketch the house (from the outside), the gardens and the fascinating architecture of Sylvan Place which are all part of the Jumel Historic District in Washington Heights. Our focus will be the exterior of the building and grounds. For those who wish to visit the interior they are welcome to do so and take a tour. There is an entrance fee.
Please note: The Hamilton Grange is closed on Tuesday so we couldn't visit it as originally planned. It will be scheduled at a later date.
