About this event
REOPENING! Rockingham served as General George Washington’s final wartime headquarters in later 1783 but that is only part of the story. The property had multiple owners over its three-hundred-plus-years-long history, changed in size and scope and was moved three times. Come along on an exploration of Rockingham’s history, it’s changing architecture and address, varied owners and property lay-out with help from the exterior of the house itself, maps and period images. ALSO, for the first time since March 2020, we will be stepping INSIDE the house as well to focus on General Washington’s stay, including who accompanied him and what occurred at that time in the house’s history!
FACIAL COVERINGS are REQUIRED during the inside house portion of the tour at this time. Extreme heat and steady rain shortens the outside portion of the tour. Meet on the south (front) stone porch by the blue flag, facing the garden.
