Accessibility

Roger Morris Park is accessible, but due to its age and Landmark status, the Morris-Jumel Mansion is not wheelchair accessible at this time. Visitors with limited mobility sometimes find it easier to enter the Mansion from our side door, as this only has three steps. Please feel free to call ahead with any mobility concerns and we will do our best to make your visit a success.
