After a juice breakfast at Glick Farm, I spent about an hour or so, in conversation with Beth, David and their little nephew. The next stop on my itinerary was to be George Washington’s Headquarters, in Morristown, NJ. I crossed the Delaware River with little fanfare and no illustrator on hand, around Noon.
Having time to spare before visiting Penny’s parents in Pompton Plains, I was able to spend 1 1/2 hours at this small, but important, site in the annals of the War for American Independence.
A guided tour of the Ford mansion, where General Washington stayed with his entourage during the planning and execution of the defense of central New Jersey, in the midst of our nation’s struggle to gain independence from Britain, shows these rooms and scenes.
Here is the exterior of Ford Mansion.
Having done a measure of justice to this major site in the life of our first Commander-in-Chief, I headed to a visit and dinner with my guardian angel’s folks.
Next: Day 7, A Guided Tour of Princeton
That’s a gorgeous mansion! I’d love to visit there someday. It sounds like you enjoyed your visit with Beth and her family. She is a nice lady. 🙂
Morristown is probably two hours from your house, Sandra, There are two sections to the park: this one and Jockey Hollow, which I’ve visited with Penny and which is about twenty minutes closer to you.
Yup, it’s 2 hours from me. I am gonna look into it. Thank you, Gary! 🙂
That is a wonderful photo of you and Beth. Ford Mansion is an amazing place and Ty for sharing your adventure in photos. Very enjoyable.
Glad to oblige, Ruth. As my best friend says, it’s not where one travels, it’s who one travels with, that matters most. 🙂
I love to see historic places. It would have been a great experience.
