Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden
The Mount Vernon Hotel Museum building was constructed in 1799 as a carriage house and converted into a “day hotel” in 1826. Today, as the only surviving day hotel in New York City, the Museum transports visitors back to that Mount Vernon Hotel, a 19th-century country resort for New Yorkers escaping the crowded city below 14th Street. The Museum’s mission is to preserve and interpret travel, leisure, work and play in diverse antebellum New York. Enjoy a guided tour of eight period rooms, browse in the gift shop, and linger in the secret garden.
