Built in 1754, located 30 miles from Philadelphia, the Moland Family country summer farmhouse along the old York Road in Warwick Township, would become the “Headquarters Farm” of the 13 day “Neshamini” encampment of 11,000 Continental Army, in August 1777 and the headquarters for General George Washington and his staff, as British General William Howe and the British Army departed from the “Capes of Delaware”, destination unknown at the time.  From here, the Continental Army would leave to march through the colonial capital of Philadelphia, on to Wilmington, engaging the Crown’s troops at Brandywine Creek near Chadds Ford, Delaware County (then Chester County), Pennsylvania.

In 1996 Warwick Township, Bucks County, acquired the property, and heroic and ongoing efforts since have sought to restore, preserve and maintain this American treasure, and a Bucks County Historic Highlight. The first President of the United States, Commander of the Continental Army- really did sleep here.  The Annual Holiday Craft Fair is a wonderful treat for Holiday Shopping, at a historic Bucks County site.
