Follow in the footsteps of George Washington at Brandywine Battlefield. Two Quaker farmhouses, occupied by Washington and Lafayette, are located on the grounds and stand much as they did in 1777. Programs include Patriots Day and Summer History Camp. Visitor services include exhibits, orientation film, guided tours of the park, Benjamin Ring House (Washington’s Headquarters) and a museum store. The battlefield is located in the rolling countryside of Brandywine Valley. The Brandywine River Museum is located nearby. Operated in partnership with the Brandywine Battlefield Park Associates.
