  • NJ was pivotal in the American Revolution. The Ford Mansion HQ is a cornerstone of the country's first national historical park.  more »
  • Fell short of my expectations as there were few items that were original to the period since many are at the Smithsonian Museum in Wash., DC.  more »
  • The museum is under renovation so there is not a lot to see. There is a tour to the Ford home which leaves from the museum. The walk to the Ford home has a steep incline so Seniors beware. We peeked i...  more »

  • Great trip for history buffs as well as those who should be! See the home Washington stayed in and used as his headquarters plus a visitor center with lots of info and artifacts. Basically 2 buildings here, but other sites are a few miles away. Video is very good explanation; Ford house tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable. All can be seen in a few hours here, but other sites can also been done on the same day.
  • It’s a lovely small exhibit but there is no entrance for my mom who needs wheelchair accessible. Seems rather strange that they wouldn’t have a ramp so someone with physical limitations can see the headquarter house- which is the main focus of the place.
  • Excellent visit to the area. First was Jockey Hollow and Wick Farm, where the soldiers stayed, and then Ford home, which was headquarters. Well done.
  • 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!
