Visitors to the house will need to wear a mask, as well as provide proof of ID and vaccination for entry, as the 257 year old structure is not climate controlled, with little air circulation and some confined spaces.

Health and Safety Guidelines for Concert-goers:  Attendees who need to enter the Mansion to use restroom facilities during the concert will be required to wear a mask.

Morris-Jumel Mansion is the oldest remaining house in Manhattan. Situated in beautiful Roger Morris Park, the museum regularly hosts outdoor summer concerts and other events designed to bring our community together to enjoy nature, the arts, and our shared history. We are honored to partner again with our neighbor, Marjorie Eliot for the 30th presentation of this special, intimate event. Our location, across the street from historic apartment building 555 Edgecombe Avenue, (also known as the “Triple Nickel”) is particularly appropriate for a celebration of music. It was home to artists like Count Basie, singer and actor Paul Robeson, vocalists Cassandra Wilson and Tulani Kinard (Sweet Honey in the Rock), and today is the site of Ms. Eliot’s weekly Sunday Parlor Jazz sessions.
