Historic site Information

Site of the Hasbrouck House, where George Washington commanded his troops for 16 ½ months at the close of the Revolutionary War. New York State acquired the 6 ½ acre site in 1850, making it the first property in the United States to be publicly purchased and opened for the sole purpose of historic preservation. Washington’s Headquarters also features an adjacent 1910 Georgian Revival style Museum building, which contains:“Unpacked & Rediscovered: Selections from the Washington’s Headquarters’ Collection.”

Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site is now listed as a significant stop along the Hudson River Valley National Area Revolutionary War Trail. Museum Hours:  Mid-April – October: Wednesday - Saturday, 11:00 AM — 5:00 PM and Sunday, 1:00 PM — 5:00 PM; November – Mid-April: Friday & Saturday, 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM.
