“Revolutionary War Historical Site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

The women who gave the tour of the house were informative, interesting and ready to answer any questions. It isn't always open, we lucked up on a Girl Scout troup that gad an event there that day.

“Very cool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Very educational. There is an unmarked revolutionary war cemetary just up the road which this historical society is trying to revitalize and research the hundreds of soldiers who are buried there in unmarked graves. They have annual reenactments with food and costumed actors that share the history and significance of this pivotle encampment. A must see and have a meal at cafe maya which is right next to the cemetery, the best authentic Mexican food ever.
