The Ford Mansion and Museum is worth a visit if you're in the area, especially if you're a history buff. The museum is small but has some interesting artifacts and original documents. The mansion must be seen accompanied by a tour guide and there are enough starting times to fit most plans. The tour lasts about an hour. Photos are... More

Loved the tour of the grounds and seeing the Ford Mansion. The guides were both very knowledgeable and I thought it was great how they interacted with people who were on the tour. Must see if in Morristown!

I have always wanted to visit this place and finally got the chance to do so last December. The most significant thing for me is being able to see the room where Lincoln was just before he died.

I recently took the grandkids to this property. It was fascinating to hear the history and experience just standing in the home that George Washington once stood.

A must see to learn about the incredible hardships the Continental Army went through during the worst winter in history in 1779-1780. A must see for every school child in America.

This was a WONDERFUL tour given by a woman who was a total authority (and history buff) on the entire war. She took us in through the main door, and then led us through every room and space inside the mansion. The was a complete authority on everything that was Washington, and them place seemed to come alive as she... More

Visited most recently near President's Day. Kids engaged quickly with Junior Ranger projects, Dad enjoyed the 30-minute video, and, having read Dan Brown, we adults spent some time with "The Apotheosis of Washington." We visited the Ford Mansion last summer and rather enjoyed it, more so than other historical home tours we've visited. Getting there IS tricky, although well-signed, and... More

When in morristown , visit this landmark . A great NPS that gives a quick junior ranger badge for your scouts I have 2 kids, and they actually enjoyed this place. Rich in history, this place will not only appease Washington historians, but all who have interset in this period of time. The great artifacts from the past and simple... More

Visited the other day after an absence of many years, and was amazed at how well the Parks Service has done in presenting a historical context for Washington's stay in Morristown. Definitely worth a visit?

Great museum with lots of historical displays, good house tour. Ties to other local historical sites. If you are a senior, you can get a card for free entrance to most any national park.
