Washington's Encampment

The Dey Mansion is hosting an encampment in commemoration of General George Washington's visit to the Preakness Valley.

During October of 1780, General George Washington and his troops were encamped at the Dey Mansion, home of Colonel Theunis Dey, as well as the surrounding area following a visit with the French Army. The Dey Mansion offered abundant food and a safe haven for the Continental Army.

Come and learn what life was like as a soldier during the American Revolution. Watch soldiers cleaning their muskets while women prepare meals. Some officers may be drilling with their men while others plan for battle or play cards. Special appearances will be made by New Jersey’s local militia. The day will be filled with 18th century games, music, demonstrations and crafters.

Self-guided tours of the Mansion will be offered. Admission into the Mansion will be $5.00 per person. Children, 11 years of age and under, are free. Parking and outdoor activities are free to the public.
