The Weeping Willow Tree you see is a shoot from what was recorded as the largest Weeping Willow Tree in the entire United States. The original tree was toppled by a storm on July 13, 1987.

Legend has it that the original tree was planted at the time of the trial of Major John Andre or three years later when General Washington met here with Sir Carleton.

The original tree measured 94 feet across its crown and stood approximately 76 feet tall. The trunk measured 27 feet 2 inches at breast height. The round flower garden to the north of this tree is the site of the original Weeping Willow and is about as big as the base of the old tree.

A cross section of one of the branches of original Tree is on view in the Carriage House Museum.
