Washington’s Headquarters Museum and Ford Mansion Remain Open during Project
Morristown, NJ – Morristown National Historical Park (NHP) is pleased to announce that it has commenced the redesign of its Washington’s Headquarters Museum sales area. The project will reconfigure both the museum’s visitor information desk and its Eastern National store to improve accessibility and visitor orientation in the space.
During the improvement project, the museum store will be closed but the Washington’s Headquarters Museum and historic Ford Mansion will remain open on their winter schedule of Saturdays and Sundays only. Before visiting, please check the museum’s hours at http://www.nps.gov/morr/planyourvisit/hours.htm.
Eastern National is the Cooperating Association that operates Morristown NHP’s sales areas, as well as many other sales areas throughout the National Park Service. For more information on Eastern National, please visit http://easternnational.org/.
Morristown National Historical Park preserves, protects, and commemorates the landscapes, structures, features, and museum collections of the Continental Army winter encampments, the headquarters of General George Washington, and related Revolutionary War sites at Morristown, New Jersey for the benefit and inspiration of the public. The park interprets the history and subsequent commemoration of these encampments and the extraordinary fortitude of the officers and enlisted men under Washington’s leadership. Morristown NHP also represents a continuum of our nation’s efforts to protect our common heritage: as the very first “national historical park”, the park was also established to commemorate, preserve, and memorialize American history and heritage.
