General Varnum's Quarters at Valley Forge

General James Varnum arrived in Valley Forge with a brigade of troops from Connecticut and Rhode Island, his home state. During his stay, Varnum took up quarters in a stone farmhouse owned by David Stephens.

Varnum's Quarters

The house has been restored and furnished to the look it had during Varnum's residence. It is open seasonally for tours: on weekends during the summer months. Here, visitors can learn about the impact that the encampment had on the local civilians.

Baron Von Steuben Statue

Just west of Varnum's Quarters, adjacent to the parking area, is the Baron von Steuben statue. The sculpture depicts the Inspector General of the Continental Army looking out across the Grand Parade.
