Description George Washington did actually sleep in this elegant mansion, as it became his headquarters during autumn 1776. The Morris family, however, were British loyalists and returned to England after the Revolutionary War. After that the house, which was built in 1765, served as an inn until purchased by Stephen and Eliza Jumel in 1810. They restored it to its former elegance.Stephen Jumel died in 1832, leaving Eliza one of the wealthiest women in New York. She married Aaron Burr (he killed Alexander Hamilton in a duel), but divorced after two years of marriage. She retained ownership of the mansion until her death in 1865.In 1894 it was purchased by General Ferdinand and Lillie Earle, who subsequently persuaded the City of New York to purchase the house and preserve it for its place in the nation's history. Today it is operated as a non-profit museum. It is located at 163rd Street and Morris-Jumel Terrace in upper Manhattan. Photo by me June 2011.
Ken Sehres, Philadelphia, PA Member Since April 2011 Artist Statement Hi from historic Philadelphia, which is, at once, beautiful, timeless, busy, cultural, and sometimes gritty--in short it is a real city.. I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, and after quite a few years have returned to the city of my heart. I was born in Brooklyn, grew up on Long Island, and have lived in Manhattan and Tampa.
I am offering historically researched images, some original art (forthcoming), and original photographs (mine). The images are from my own collections, from the internet, and paintings by my mother (soon to come). Many will be of historic or nostalgic interest. Some will have been digitally enhanced. Credit to the artist will be given wherever possible.
At Imagekind I have the opportunity to offer a large assortment of prints, many fine papers, creative matting, and framing to compliment the prints.
Please take a look at my galleries, and check out my store at homegear.imagekind.com/store. I will be adding images on a regular basis.
