Open mid-April through October.
This is great place to visit, especially if you have young ones who are learning about the History of New York. They will be mesmerized by the actors who are in period dress. They can interact and ask questions and have a blast while learning! A lot of fun for Mom and Dad too!
While Washington was settled in at the Hasbrouck house, his 7,000 troops, along with about 500 women and children, waited out the last months of an eight-year war in log huts, struggling to survive a bitter winter. Today costumed guides demonstrate colonial life—blacksmithing, cooking, or playing musical instruments. The two-story visitor center is run by the state and offers historical exhibits, including the original Purple Heart medal, and a slide show, with cannons and muskets fired in an artillery demonstration almost every day.
