    I visited the Morristown National Historical Park and Washington Headquarters and Museum in May 2022. Ranger Tom and Ranger Kim were very helpful and knowledgeable. I watched a 15-minute film on the winter of 1779-1780 in Morristown, NJ. Most people know about Valley Forge and the winter that General George Washington and his soldiers spent in 1777-1778 but the winter of 1779-1780 was even more severe and difficult. The museum is excellent and also does a good job of covering the timeline for the entire American Revolutionary War and the key battles. The events before and after the winter of 1779-1780 in Morristown help to put everything in perspective. There is a special exhibit on documents and a nice bookstore and gift shop. If you are interested in history, this is a very worthwhile museum.

    I visited Jockey Hollow immediately after visiting the Washington Headquarters Museum and the Ford Mansion and Museum. One has to drive 10 miles from there to get to Jockey Hollow. I first went to the Jockey Hollow Visitor Center. They had a replica of a soldier hut which was very interesting and also a book and gift shop. After that you can do a self-guided driving tour. The main thing to see is three soldier huts. One needs to climb a long hill on foot to get to where the soldier huts are located. It was a very hot day so I decided just to stop halfway up the hill and take some photos. I think the Washington Headquarters Museum and the Ford Mansion Museum are "must sees". Jockey Hollow is worth a quick visit and for me, seeing the replica of a soldier hut in the Visitor Center and seeing the actual huts from a distance were good enough.

    Historical home where George Washington stayed during the winter of 1779-1780. Museum behind the home is interesting.

    Well-worth the visit if you are in the area.

    Park Ranger John is the best. Hope you get him.

    We had an amazing time with Pat on this special October tour and learned so much. The house is beautiful inside and out and Pat was a wealth of information. She is so passionate about the home, Victorian mourning traditions, and the stories of the people who lived there. We could have stayed all day and listened to everything she knew!

    This place is a hidden gem. We never knew we had a place to pick cherries so close to home! There are several orchards with seasonal picking of peaches, apples, strawberries, cherries, etc. A bit pricy at $7.99 per pound of cherries. The staff are very friendly. You must buy a membership card at $10 per person and then you can pick all season long with that card only paying for the fruit you pick. There is a nice walk into the orchards and options to take a wagon into the orchards as well. There is a store with amazing fresh baked goods, salads, sandwiches, ice cream, etc. Again, a bit pricy. There is something for everyone here.

    Awesome place to stop enjoy the path close by and see how life was back in the day. It is crazy to see how far we have progressed in such a short period of time. Well worth the stop to relax and enjoy the fall weather.

    My friend and I visited the Schuyler-Hamilton House today shortly before closing. Despite the late hour, Pat was nice enough to not only show us the house, but tell us about its owners, Dr. Jabez Campfield and Dr. John Cocrane, as well as its place in the history of Revolutionary America. She discussed Washington’s battles and strategy, explaining how Morristown played a strategic role both in its location and natural resources. In addition to the wealth of information she offered, Pat was also funny and enlivened her discussion through her humor. My friend and I stopped by because we saw this listed on a map at the Morristown National Historical Park, and it made for a fun detour. A great place to visit on an afternoon!

    This morning was an excellent time to walk around the beautiful and peaceful grounds of St. Peter’s Church. The air was cool and refreshing, the sky blue and sunny which made taking pictures of this Holy site even more meaningful.

    The 'fort' here is a myth. There is a cannon pointing towards the city centre with a small patch of lawn and a walkway around. The place has a crucial link to American history which need to be explained and communicated perfectly for visitors to understand. The place is has a pleasant ambiance and offers a great view of the town but nothing else at present. There are two notices detailing how to deal with chance encounters with bears and ticks(!) but very little on the historical significance.

    The Presbyterian Church is located at 57 E Park Place just across the street from the Morristown Green in the center of town. The First Meeting House was built in 1738 and replaced in 1795 and again replaced in 1895 by the present building.

    The Historic Graveyard (founded around 1731) is located behind the church. Many named and unknown Revolutionary Veterans are buried in the graveyard along with War of 1812 & Civil War Veterans, and prominent citizens of Morristown. Most people don’t realize there is a historic burying ground in the middle of Morristown since you can’t really see it from the street. If you decide to walk through the site you will find signage highlighting graves of interest in various areas of the burying ground. There is meter parking on the streets, parking lots, and paid garages. Check it out if you’re ever in Morristown and want to learn a little history. I’ve lived here since 1956 and yesterday was the first time I visited the burying ground. My wife and I were amazed at how many old historic headstones and markers are back there under the shade of old growth trees.

    Today I checked out the statue of Stephen Wiley which is located in Morristown on the front lawn of the Morristown and Morris Township Free Public Library. Attorney Stephen Wiley led a court battle (lawsuit) to integrate Morristown and Morris Township Schools and won.
