During the winter of 1778-79, George Washington and his top generals rented local houses to live and work with their particular men around them. This lessened the load on the local population and kept the local people happy. Beginning at the Van Horne House--HQ of The Heritage Trail Association--we will check in and enjoy our short program. Then, stepping into the bus and heading off to the Abraham Staats house, The Jacobus Vanderveer House, The Wallace House and the Van Veghten House! Docents at each house will conduct the tours inside.
