Thank you to everyone who supported the 2024 George Washington Dinner!

It was a fun and elegant evening in support of the Morris-Jumel Mansion, an historic landmark in upper Manhattan which was dubbed by Duke Ellington “the jewel in the crown of Sugar Hill.”

Guests enjoyed dinner and entertainment in the Mansion and on the grounds of the beautiful Roger Morris Park. The annual event commemorates the July 1790 dinner hosted at the Mansion by President George Washington and his wife Martha for his Cabinet and their wives, including John and Abigail Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander and Eliza Hamilton, and others.

The 2024 dinner fell on Bastille Day, the French National Day. In recognition of the historic connection between the U.S. and France, we celebrated the values of liberty, equality, brotherhood, (liberté, égalité, fraternité) that still resonate today.

The evening’s program included:

  • Remarks by New York Times bestselling author A.J. Jacobs, whose most recent book The Year of Living Constitutionally was featured on CBS Sunday Morning in a segment taped in part at Morris-Jumel Mansion.
  • Performance by The New York Baroque Dance Company.
  • Silent auction of delightful items!
