  • A great piece of revolutionary war history. The tour guide was great. Climb the tower if it is open to get a great view of the Hudson. The Washington headquarters tour was very informative. The museum had an interesting assortment of artifacts.
  • What a history attached to this place. I recommend this place if you want to know more about our first president. Our guide who gave us the tour of the house was very humble and knowledgeable. He was able to answer all our questions. Revolutionary war history lesson at very low cost. Going to the top of tower of victory is a must.
