On 10/2/1777, General Washington stayed at the Peter Wentz house in Center Point Penn. From here the army prepared to attack the British and Hessian forces at Germantown.

Also, on 10/16- 10/20/1777, Washington returned here to draw the British attention away from the forts on the Delaware. The forts eventually fell.

It was here that Washington and the army learned of the victory at Saratoga. General Burgoyne surrendered his entire army. The victory was encouraging for French entry into the war as allies.

The house and farm is in great condition and has visiting hours.
