John Brown Farm

Brigadier General Henry Knox, Washington's 27 year old artillery chief, used as his quarters the small stone section of this house. Located upstream on Valley Creek from Washington's Headquarters, this was the farm home of John Brown and his family. As was typical in the area, the small stone house was increased in size to meet the needs of a larger family and as a show of wealth.
