Washington's Headquarters from January 6 to May 28, 1777

— The Morristown Green —

On January 6, 1777 General George Washington established his winter headquarters at Jacob Arnold's Tavern, then located at what is now 20 Park Place. He occupied rooms on the second floor. His officers and men were quartered in every house and barn in the vicinity. A large encampment is believed to have set up tents in Loantaka Valley (between Woodland and Spring Valley Roads). Washington remained here until he left for Middlebrook on May 28, 1777. The Arnold Tavern was moved to a location on Mt. Kemble Avenue in 1886 and burned in 1918.
