On December 22, 2014, my friend Dhruv and I went to New York for the day, to spend time in the City the Never Sleeps before Christmas. This time, I had planned to go visit Federal Hall, and so the two of us took a guided tour through the hallowed ground where our first President once stood.
Headquarters: Newburg, NY
Gen. George Washington operated here during the Revolutionary War.
On July 15, 2009, we went to Newburg to pick out the granite for our new countertops, after we picked it out, we saw a sign that pointed out that Washington's Headquarters State Historic Site was nearby. We decided to visit this as well. We got the tour of the headquarters, and it was wonderful! We then went to the FDR Library and Museum in Hyde Park.
This is the sign outside of the headquarters.
This plaque is located on the boulder in front of the monument.

While not exactly one of Washington's homes, this was the home of his nephew-in-law, Robert E. Lee. This house contains the bed in which Washington took his final breath.
When we had visited the JFK Eternal Flame and William Taft's graves, we decided to tour the Arlington House, which was in the cemetery. Unfortunately, (yet another highlight of our trip to Washington!), it was empty of most furnishings, (including the deathbed), in preperation for a restoration project to be finished the next year (2010).
