Oldest House in Garrison Opens for Two Weekends
Enjoy a rare guided tour of the Mandeville House, the oldest house in Garrison. Built in 1737 by Jacob Mandeville, a young man of Dutch origin, the house was a strategic point during the American Revolution, and was headquarters for General Israel Putnam. Many Revolutionary War heroes were quartered at the house-the most notable being General George Washington.
