Fall and Winter Hours at Washington's Headquarters

Fall and Winter Hours at Washington's Headquarters Nov 3, 2017 to Mar 31, 2018 Location: 84 Liberty St, Newburgh, NY 12551

As the seasons change, Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site changes its hours of operation. The last day of our extended hours will be Sunday, October 29th. The site will reopen on Friday, November 3rd to begin its Fall/Winter hours, which are Fridays and Saturdays, 11:00 AM until 3:00 PM. Schools and other groups of one or more can visit Tuesday through Saturday by pre-arranged appointment, and the site will also open for Special Events. The site plans to expand its hours again in mid-April.

Come in from the brisk outdoors and take a guided tour of the historic farmhouse used by General and Mrs. Washington, several of his aides, guards, servants and slaves during the last 16 ½ months of the Revolutionary War. Walk In the same rooms as the General did in the house where he announced the cease fire, rejected a monarchy, and created and awarded the Badge of Military Merit, precursor to the Purple Heart.

Visit our multi award-winning exhibit, Unpacked & Rediscovered: Selections from Washington’s Headquarters’ Collection. From our grounds enjoy the scenery of the Hudson Highlands and the majestic Hudson River view during the Autumn/Winter season.
