Comprehensive and easily accessible website helps push the museum into a modern era
(Wayne, NJ) – The Dey Mansion, a historic house museum in Wayne that was once used as General George Washington’s military headquarters has announced the launch of its new website, www.deymansion.org. The newly created website will benefit patrons and history enthusiasts with richer online content that is comprehensive and easy to navigate.
“In February of 2016, the Passaic County Freeholders funded a multi-million dollar renovation that restored the Mansion to its former glory and re-opened it to the public,” said Freeholder Director Sandi Lazzara. “Since that time, the Mansion has constructed a visitor center, expanded hours and programs, became a virtual classroom, and now has launched a new website that will enhance visitor experience.”
This newly created website offers quick and easy access to information such as the museum’s historic collections, photo galleries, information on special events, and ways to help you or a group plan a tour of the mansion. It will also be regularly updated with information on upcoming projects, such as the restoration of the Mansion’s Garden. Visitors will find that the new website effectively displays all the Dey Mansion has to offer.
The Dey Mansion is located on the Preakness Valley Golf Course in Wayne. The museum holds regular hours for visitor tours, hosts school outings, and serves as a meeting location for organizations.
“We are excited about the launch of the new Dey Mansion website and the information we will able to offer patrons and partners,” said Freeholder John W. Bartlett, Esq. “This website will help modernize the Dey Mansion and increase its already growing popularity amongst visitors.”
The Dey Mansion is an excellent example of Georgian architecture of the mid-eighteenth century, which served as Washington’s Headquarters in July, October and November of 1780. Today, the Dey Mansion is owned by Passaic County and operated by the Department of Cultural & Historic Affairs. It is open to the public for tours and programs.
