Eliza Jumel is not the only one to have found a comfortable home at the Morris-Jumel Mansion. A colony of paper wasps settled in this summer, building a snug nest beneath the cornice on the east façade. Their apartments are now vacant, as wasps don't winter over in the Northeast and don't reuse nests from year to year. The abandoned dwelling remains.
