Details

An official Path Through History Site! General Washington established his Newburgh headquarters at Jonathan and Tryntje Hasbrouck's fieldstone farmhouse from 1782 to 1783, issuing an order for a "cessation of hostilities" from the house. Washington spent more time there than any other place during the Revolution and made some of his most important contributions to shaping the American republic during those critical months, including rejecting the idea that he should be king, preventing military control of the government, creating the Badge of Military Merit (now the Purple Heart), and writing key principles for the Constitution. Visitors can tour the rooms where history was made in the critical months of the American Revolution, see Washington's office in the farmhouse and visit the museum across the lawn.
