Search Morristown New Jersey

Part of the Morristown National Historical Park, General George Washington rented this home (built in 1774) for the winter of 1779-1780. Consequently, the Ford Mansion, one of the finest homes in Morristown, became the General's military headquarters during this time. The house is furnished in period.
