Historic Dey Mansion Museum In Wayne Receives Upgrades

(Wayne, NJ) – The Dey Mansion, a historic house museum in Wayne, once used as General George Washington’s military headquarters, has announced the grand opening of its recently completed visitor center and the launch of its new website www.deymansion.org. The visitor center will provide additional benefits to historic organizations and museum patrons. The newly created website will benefit patrons and history enthusiasts with richer online content that is comprehensive and easy to navigate. The Dey Mansion will hold a Grand Opening Ceremony on May 12th from 11-4pm, and will be offering free admission to the museum.

“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 expanded hours and programs, became a virtual classroom, built a new visitor center, and launched a new website to enhance the 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 regarding upcoming projects, such as the restoration of the Mansion’s Garden.

The Visitor Center will offer additional meeting spaces for historic organizations, house a gift shop, and provide additional space for artifact displays.

Patrons will find that the new website and visitor center 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 historic organizations.

“We are excited about the launch of the new Dey Mansion website and the information we will be able to offer patrons and partners,” said Freeholder John W. Bartlett, Esq. “This website will help modernize the Dey Mansion experience and increase its already growing popularity amongst history lovers.”
