The Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden
In 1924, the Society purchased the property that was to become the Mt. Vernon Hotel Museum. Originally known as the Abigail Adams Smith House, it is located at 421 East 61st St in New York City. After extensive restoration, it was opened to the public in 1939, timed to coincide with the New York World’s Fair. In 1973, it was restored for the second time and added to the National Register of Historic Places. It is one of the few 18th century buildings remaining on the island of Manhattan.
