This fall, the Peter Wentz Farmstead is beginning a new annual tradition! This yearly interpretive event will see the Wentz family’s home transformed into Washington’s headquarters as it was in October 1777.

This is an ongoing exhibit that is included in all regular tours. Washington dictated 25 letters and eight orders while on the Wentz property, some of which mention the property by name. The exhibit recreates 1777 to help visitors understand how Washington used the Farmstead.
