Washington visited Tappan New York 4 times through the war.

8/8/- 8/23/1780.

9/28/- 10/6/1780.

5/4/- 5/8/1783.


The restaurant above was a tavern at the time of Benedict Arnold
and was where British Officer Major John Andre was held prior to his execution.

Below is the marker for the gallows where Major John Andre' was executed for spying and his participation in the Benedict Arnold affair.

The DeWint House today as it is maintained by the Masons.
Washington met with British Officers and officials prior to the surrender of NYC at the DeWint House. Over a banquet, the terms were stuck for the British withdrawl.
To the Masons credit, the House is now dedicated to Masons that were on both sides. I think George would have liked that.

Above and below is the John De Windt house. A modest farm house where General Washington made his headquarters.
