The Mount Vernon Hotel Museum and Garden (MVHM) offers two summer Fellowships

museum education, material culture or other related fields. Fellows participate directly in the daily operations of a historic site in many departments. Students engage in original historical research related to the Museum’s interpretation and programs. Now in its

II. Mission and History of the Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden
One of New York City’s oldest structures, the Museum building dates from 1799, when it
was constructed as a carriage house on Mount Vernon, a large country estate situated
along the East River. In 1826, the building was converted into the Mount Vernon Hotel,
a popular country resort that catered to middle-class New Yorkers seeking to escape the
city. The MVHM interprets travel, leisure, work and play in New York City and
Jacksonian America, including labor history, race relations, immigration, and gender
roles. The Museum is owned and operated by the Colonial Dames of America, a
women’s genealogical organization dedicated to historic preservation.

The Museum’s audience reflects New York City’s rich diversity. Over 30 programs each
year include Lunchtime Lectures, Summer Garden Concerts, lectures by historians and
collectors, exhibits, childrens’ storytime and more. Blending public history with hands-on
interpretation for children and adults, we want to share why history matters in engaging
fun ways.
