Morristown National Historical Park has received the first shipment of its new park brochure! Park staff coordinated with the National Park Service's Harpers Ferry Center to design and produce this new visitor resource. The Harpers Ferry Center provides expertise in interpretive media to all National Park Service sites.
Featured on the front of the brochure are two full-color renderings by the artist Keith Rocco that bring to life scenes of the Continental Army's 1779-1780 winter encampment in Morristown, New Jersey. One images depicts Martha Washington's arrival at the Ford Mansion in December 1779, with General Washington greeting her at the foot of the stairs and snow covering the ground. The second scene highlights the daily activities at the Jockey Hollow Pennsylvania Line encampment during the winter of 1779-1780.
The back of the brochure includes images of museum collection items as well as an updated and larger version of the park map. Additionally, it features information on the top ten locations to visit at the park - Washington's Headquarters Museum and Ford Mansion, Fort Nonsense, the Jockey Hollow Encampment Area and Visitor Center, the Wick House, the Pennsylvania Line Encampment Site, the Grand Parade, the Stark's Brigade Encampment Site, the New Jersey Brigade Encampment Site, and the Cross Estate Gardens.
Visitors can stop by and pick up their own free copy of the new brochure at Washington's Headquarters Museum or the Jockey Hollow Visitor Center. A digital copy is also available on the park's website.
