The Hendrick Kip House was the revolutionary headquarters of Baron Von Steuben and also utilized by George Washington & Count Casimir Pulaski. (I did take American history in university, but I only know who 1 of those 3 names are.)

Either that, or it is one super-dooper peep hole!

The home also features old wideboard floors made from local timber…
