  • New Windsor Cantonment State Historic Site is a Revolutionary War site where George Washington spent the last winter & spring of the war. how cool is that. do i need to say more why you should stop here. all also have events so check their site out for time and dates.
  • Part of the rich Revolutionary War history in Newburgh, combine a trip here with a trip to Washington's HQ and Knotts homestead for an enjoyable teaching experience for your kids or visitors. You can really appreciate the hardship faced by soldiers in the winter. If you have time, visit the nearby Purple Heart Museum.
  • The Purple Heart memorial is nice. The cantonment is a beautiful testament to what our forefathers did for us.
  • I was surprised at how much I enjoyed our visit. The staff were in full costume and were great at sharing lots of historical information. A couple of our favorite things were watching the blacksmith make a nail that we got to keep, and seeing a guy fire a musket.
  • Great place to get your learn on. Check online for events.
