— After all the festive dining, football gamesm and parade floats, Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site in Newburgh invites you to get out of the house and explore on Friday, Nov. 24, and Saturday, Nov. 25, from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. each day.

Tour the historic Hasbrouck House, where General and Mrs. Washington, several aides, guards, servants, and slaves were housed during the last 16 and a half months of the Revolutionary War. While there, visit the museum, which houses more than 1,300 artifacts.

Design your own take-home craft, a personalized bookplate for your favorite book, at the Community Gallery as a reminder of your visit to the first publicly owned historic site in the nation.

A bookplate is a small print or decorative label pasted into a book, often on the inside front cover, to indicate its owner. Sample designs for additional inspiration will be provided.

Admission is $4 for adults, $3 for senior citizens and students, and free for children 12. The craft session is free with museum admission.

For more information, call 845-562-1195.
