Each year we have a reenactment to celebrate Washington’s August 1777 encampment. The grounds of the Moland House come alive with 18th Century music, children’s games, and demonstrations of colonial crafts. The 2015 reenactment is scheduled for August 15 from 10:00-4:00. The rain date is the following Saturday on August 22nd.
The Warwick Township Historical Society has worked long and hard to save the Moland House from ruin! How many communities can boast of a 13-day encampment by Washington and 11,000 troops of the Continental Army? No place in the United States but the Moland House can claim to be the site where the Marquis de Lafayette first assumed his duties as a Major General, and Washington met Count Casimir Pulaski for the first time! This house is a national treasure in our own back yard.
In addition to being a wonderful learning opportunity for the community, our reenactment is an important fundraiser for the Historical Society. All proceeds go to deferring the cost of the reenactment and to support the Moland House. Admission to the event is: Adults $5.00; Seniors (62+) $4.00; Youth (5 – 12) $2.00 ; Families (Parents and children) $10.00.
