A very nice tour of Washington's Headquarters. Check times/dates on their website because sometimes the entrance fee is waived. Tour guides are costumed in living history fashion and are extremely knowledgeable about Washington, the house and the Revolutionary War. Definitely stop if you are in the area.

We visited this on a day they were closed???? Check the website for the limited days this place is open. They were kind enought to let us look around but we couldn't go in the buildings. It is privately ran and it shows. I would recommend just driving by as it can be seen from the road. There is not... More

We took our nephew to see the HQ. We got lunch at the Cafe across the street and shopped at an urban marketplace on the side of the HQ. We paid for a tour and got to see the inside of the Crawford House. Ask to see the second floor! We had a good time and would recommend it to... More

We had visited many Revolutionary War historic sites all week throughout NY State and ended at this site. The museum is full of so many artifacts that you could spend hours going through them all, but don't miss doing the tour of the home. Our tour guide was a little dry at first reciting the tour, but once we started... More

Was looking for somewhere to take our son in Newburgh and came across the headquarters. Working in Newburgh for years, we never knew this site existed! Beautiful grounds, but will visit again earlier in the day. We arrived near closing, but the staff was kind and allowed us to walk around a bit. Great piece of history!

Washington's headquarters is a gem in the city of Newburgh. The staff is friendly and very informative, a great place for a family outing and to top it off you leave with a good sense of the history of the era. Events are often held on the ground that make it a perfect place to schedule if in the area.... More

Little known jewel hidden in a rough neighborhood. The tour guide was very good! So glad we went, and being in the place where that great man made so much history was awesome. Beautiful scenery of the Hudson and hills too.

My husband and I tried to visit this place on a Sunday morning around 10:00 a.m. while passing through this area. It is located in a very unsafe place. We tried to find the parking lot which is not clear. We had to get turned around in a very unsafe area. We got to the the parking lot and there... More
