Morristown National Historic Park

The adjacent museum contains two museum galleries featuring a 25-minute film on 18th-century soldier life, and visitors can hike up Fort Nonsense hill nearby, where soldiers built a safe house in the spring of 1777 for defense against British attack. Jockey Hollow Visitors Center, located 5 miles from the fort, features a reconstructed Revolutionary soldier’s hut and mural of the 10,000 troops that camped there during the winter of 1779.

We hope you enjoy our work.
