In the early 1930s, the National Park Service was approached by Morristown Mayor Clyde Potts and other leading citizens with the idea of creating a national park in Morristown, New Jersey to commemorate the 1779-1780 winter encampment of George Washington and the Continental Army. While it was local citizens who helped create the park, the 1930s Washington’s Headquarters Museum was designed by the architectural firm of John Russell Pope, most famous for public buildings such as the Thomas Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C.

The booklet was written and researched by the park’s Chief of Interpretation, Anne DeGraaf, with park colleagues Eric Olsen, Jude Pfister, Joni Rowe and Thomas Winslow. It includes photographs of the park's early years and of artifacts from the museum's collection. Funding for its publication was provided by Eastern National, Morristown NHP’s cooperating association that manages the park’s sales areas. The booklet retails for $8.95 and is available at Morristown NHP’s Washington’s Headquarters Museum and Jockey Hollow Visitor Center, or via mail order by contacting the park’s Eastern National manager, Midge Wohl at: .

Morristown NHP’s 1930s Washington’s Headquarters Museum is now open with a gift shop/ sales area, as a visitor contact point to begin Ford Mansion tours and for visitor access to the restrooms. Tours of Washington’s Headquarters at the Ford Mansion are offered daily at 10 am, 11 am, 1 pm, 2 pm, 3pm and 4 pm. The National Park Service continues to work with the park’s private partner, the Washington Association of New Jersey, to raise funds for and plan the museum’s exhibits.
