Really nice historic site. The grounds are so peaceful and the information on the exhibits are great. Totally worth a stop especially in the nice weather. Benches and walking space is so pleasant.

Visited the DeWint House recently. Very historic home. George Washington had used this home as his HQ during the Revolutionary War. There is a small museum on the grounds pack with interesting items. The home is also open to visitors. The grounds are also very well kept. Nice place to relax and even have a picnic.

The house is kept in original condition and furnished as it would have been at the time. The Masons have preserved the house and property in wonderful condition. The 12 minute introductory video is a good history of the property.

Our group thoroughly enjoyed visiting the DeWint national historic Masonic site,where George Washington (who was a Mason his whole life) stayed 4 times. It is an excellent place to learn about colonial life, history, and Freemasonry, with many artifacts that were found on the grounds. There are beautiful, unusual, trees, such as an enormous weeping birch, and chestnut trees. The town of Tappan has no fewer than 15 historic sites.There is a small slave cemetery on theDeWint grounds .

The DeWint house is owned and operated by the NYS Masons. It is a unique piece of history as George Washington did use it as his headquarters for part of the Revolutionary War. It is a small but nice site. There are other historic sites nearby so it can be part of a day trip from NYC

The DeWint house is a less well known national historic site and served as headquarters of General Washington when he was in southern NY. It is a great place for a visit!

Very small spot. It would be nice if they had history books or something more to explain the signficance other than the short movie. With such sales, maybe they could open up the second story.

Extremely well maintained, and the gentleman on duty was courtly and well informed.

Visit was ok... enjoyed waking around the Carriage house more because they had John Andre things in there I have not seen, which is impressive in itself. The video to watch is in dire need of an update and a factcheck, was hard for me to watch because I know too much on Andre.

Not much to see in the DeWint, very limited as to what you can see. No one inside to answer any questions I had either.
