The "battlefield" is not where the signs take you when visiting here, it's actually a kind of overgrown and patchwork 10 acre site that was washington's headquarters and some other buildings. The roads on the site are not clearly marked, are kind of wonky, and...More

Was blown away to learn about this epic battle in the larger context of the Revolutionary War. This was not one they taught you in school. Quite interesting in terms of its location, scale and place in the history books.

Local educational stop for children of all ages. So much history surrounds this area of Pennsylvania. Worth the stop.

If you have been to Gettysburg or a comparable Civil War battlefield, then this Revolutionary War site will leave a lot to be desired. The land is beautiful and some of the houses restored, but there is not much to see. No monuments or placards...More

The only way it would be better is if the "Washington house" was the actual house that Washington stayed in and used as his head quarters, and the reproduction. Also the Washington coat and hat in the house are way to small for a man...More

I was running errands and needed to stretch my legs.......that is when I stumbled upon this Battlefield. Not much to see, but interesting enough for history buffs. Plus you can get some pretty cool pics here with family for holiday cards 😉
