The historic Village of Cold Spring is a small community in southeastern New York that is situated on the east bank of the Hudson River. It was established in 1846 and enjoyed a booming industrial economy throughout the 19th century with the success of the West Point Foundry, which became famous for the manufacture of the Parrott Cannon of Civil War fame and other munitions. The community has since shifted from its industrial past to an economy dependent on tourism. Main Street is the focal point of a well-preserved National Historic District and is lined with novelty and antique stores, restaurants, and residences. The village is across the river from West Point in the most scenic region of the Hudson Highlands.
Visit the nation’s first publicly owned historic site and tour the rooms where American history was made. In the critical months that General George Washington spent at Newburgh, he made some of his most important contributions to shaping the American republic. It was here that Washington rejected the idea that he should be king after the war; ended the Newburgh conspiracy, preventing military control of the government; created and awarded the Badge of Military Merit, forerunner of the Purple Heart; and circulated a letter to State Governors that influenced the writing of the Constitution.
- The Washington’s Headquarters are not open on Mondays and Tuesdays but can be replaced by another site.
