When Washington’s Army was encamped at Middlebrook in the spring of 1777, earthen redoubts were built west of Chimney Rock Road and north of the west branch of the Middlebrook. The redoubts were 75ft. square and 4 ft. deep and were equipped with a cannon and a complement of soldiers to defend the rear and right flank of the Middlebrook Encampment. These redoubts were also used in the winter of 1778-79. This is the only remaining original redoubt in New Jersey.
