On 9/6/1777 Washington reined in his horse here at the Hale-Byrnes House in Stanton Delaware. The Continentals had just fought the Battle of Cooches Bridge. After the battle, Washington had a council of war to determine how best to move against the British.

Legend has it that Washington rested in the shade of the tree in front and was brought water by the son of the home owner.

House is in good shape and open to the public the first Wednesday of the month.
