For the Trouble of the House – Washington’s Stay at the Peter Wentz Farmhouse
October 15 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
How do we know George Washington stayed at the Peter Wentz house? As it turns out Washington kept a detailed expense account that lists both room and board that he paid to those who provided it for him and his staff. For example, for the dates that Washington stayed with the Wentz’s, there are receipts that that show that the general paid Peter’s son Mathias Wentz for milk, butter, cabbages and other food items. Records also show that the general paid Mathias for rent, in entries recorded as “for the trouble of the house.” Come and learn about Washington’s stay with the Wentz’s as we delve into these accounts that make history spring to life. For all ages. Free, but space is limited and registration is required. Meet at the visitor center at the scheduled times.
