The historic Hasbrouck House served as headquarters for General Washington, and his wife, Martha, his aides, guards, enslaved and free servants during the last 16 ½ months of the Revolutionary War. While here the General announced the cease fire, authored some of his thoughts for the new republic, quelled a potential rebellion of officers, rejected a monarchy, and created the Badge of Military Merit, forerunner of the Purple Heart. So much history is within the walls of this farmhouse which later became the first publicly owned historic site in the nation, in 1850.
Visit the Museum where over 1,300 artifacts are housed, among them a lock of George Washington’s hair, a Sharp’s rifle, a Purple Heart issued to a member of Merrill’s Marauders and a Bailey sword, to name a few. Make a reservation to view the rest of this eclectic collection.
