The Morris House in Morrisville PA.
Washington used the house from 12/8-12/14 after leading his army from Fort Lee across the frozen fields of New Jersey and the Delaware. The march is what "tried men's souls".
The house sits on a hill opposite the City of Trenton. It was here that Washington started to gather intelligence that led to the attack on Trenton at Christmas and the surrender of the Hessian garrison staying there.

The house presently sits on the local school ground and is in fairly good shape.
