The White House Farm in New Brunswick. Washington stayed here on 12/5/1783. He said his farewell to his officers in Fraunces Tavern and proceeded south to Annapolis. The war was over and when he met the Congress, he would surrender his commission.
The house has been remodeled over the years and it is now called the Buccleuch Mansion in the park by the same name. British soldiers were quartered here during the war as New Brunswick was a loyalist stronghold.
