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. 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. Morristown NHP is the primary NPS site in the Crossroads of the American Revolution National Heritage Area. Established by the U.S. Congress in 2006, the Crossroads promotes a greater understanding of Revolutionary-era historical sites and landscapes in New Jersey.
