A Country Ball upon the Anniversary of Washington’s Birthday at Historic New Bridge Landing
Sunday, February 24, 2019 at 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Celebrate the 287th anniversary of Washington’s Birthday at Historic New Bridge Landing, where General George Washington made his headquarters in September 1780, when Continental troops encamped between Van Saun Park in River Edge and Soldier Hill Road in Oradell.
Historic New Bridge Landing is an American Revolutionary War battleground and includes three Jersey-Dutch sandstone houses, exhibits, tavern, gift shop and outkitchen. A tiger-stripe maple bedstead, reputedly used in a local home where George Washington stayed during the 1780 Steenrapie Encampment, is displayed in the Demarest House. The room in the Steuben House where Washington stayed for ten days during the Steenrapie Encampment is also open for viewing.
