Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site in Newburgh will begin an extensive Pathway Improvement Project in July, 2020. Being the first publicly owned historic site in the Nation, the Pathway Project will be respectful of the site’s history, while enhancing public access to the grounds and the Site’s significant historic features.
The scope of the project includes repair of existing bluestone walkways, enhancing the accessible parking area, and enhancing accessible paths on nearly seven acres of grounds. It will also reestablish a path to the recently restored Tower of Victory.
The grounds at Washington’s Headquarters will continue to be open during the project, although with certain areas off limit based on the phasing of the construction work. Large outdoor gatherings, programming and celebrations will be suspended for the duration of the project.
