  • Very small but informative display of artifacts from the Revolutionary War period, many relating to Washington. Includes a tour of Ford Mansion, which has been restored and furnished in the colonial style to show where and how Washington and his aides were housed during the winter of 1780.
  • Great history wonderful rangers. Makes me appreciate my way of life!

  • Great historical places. Ford mansion also part of national park service
