Constructed in 1799 as a carriage house and converted into a hotel in 1826, the Museum transports visitors back to the Mount Vernon Hotel, a 19th-century country resort for New Yorkers escaping the crowded city below 14th Street. Tour the period rooms and garden and learn about travel, leisure, work and play in antebellum New York.
