Operating Hours & Seasons
Dear Friends, Effective March 1, 2013, Morristown National Historical Park was required by "sequestration" (a series of automatic, across-the-board permanent spending cuts) to reduce its annual budget by five percent. The park has made several adjustments to ensure a continuation of the high level of service that you expect from your National Parks.
Beginning on January 5, 2014, the Jockey Hollow Visitor Center will be closed, and will not reopen until February 16. During that same period, the Washington's Headquarters Museum and the Ford Mansion will only be open on Saturdays and Sundays. The grounds of the park will remain open and restroom facilities in Jockey Hollow will also be accessible during the normal hours listed at www.nps.gov/morrIn order to ensure high quality programming and services, we will be closing the Jockey Hollow Visitor Center, Wick House, Washington's Headquarters Museum and Ford Mansion on Wednesdays beginning March 2014. We will resume 7 day operations between Memorial Day and Labor day. This closure provides the park with the flexibility to continue offering education programs and workshops, and allows time to develop new and exciting programming.
We are sorry for the inconvenience that this may cause and thank you for your continued support during these times of fiscal constraint.

The Iroquois Confederacy was based in what is now northern New York and was initially comprised of the Seneca, Onondaga, Oneida, Cayuga and Mohawk nations. After 1720 the Tuscarora fled north from a series of decimating inter-tribal wars and became the sixth nation of the confederacy.
