Serving as General George Washington's headquarters as he prepared for the Battle of Germantown in the fall of 1777, the Wentz farm momentarily found itself at the center of our War for Independence. At different events throughout the year, Revolutionary War reenactors remind us of that crucial moment in our nation's history.
