Overview of The Jacob Ford Jr. Mansion: The Storied History of a New Jersey Home

In 1772, the Ford family began building what would easily become the largest home in Morristown, and years later it became the site of the first national historical park in the United States. Completed just before colonial unrest reached a boiling point, the home quickly secured a reputation as a place of prominence for supporters of colonial interests. Today, the mansion is best known as George Washington's headquarters, when it became a strategic site for Washington during a winter encampment and gained importance for its role in the American Revolution. Jude M. Pfister tells the story of this beloved home that has endured the tests of time and whose own history is inextricably woven into that of the country's past.
