This is an old Dutch colonial house used as a military headquarters during the American Revolution, complimentary to Washington's Headquarters and the New Windsor Contonement.

This site is only opened in the summer. The staff has put together a wonderful exhibit to illustrate the role this building and its occupants played in the American Revolution. the staff is well informed and the grounds well maintained in historical period.
