It was built in 1765 in the Palladian style by Roger Morris, a British military officer, and served as a headquarters for both sides in the American Revolution. It was bought in 1810 by Stephen and Eliza Jumel, and remodeled in the Federal style. The interiors are Georgian. Aaron Burr later married Eliza Jumel and lived in the house.
