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.

III. Application Procedures
Applicants are strongly encouraged to visit the Museum’s website before applying for a
Fellowship. All applicants must be enrolled in a college undergraduate or graduate
