Jacobus Vanderveer House & Museum

The Jacobus Vanderveer House and Museum  was headquarters of General Henry Knox during the winter of 1778-79 and the only surviving building associated with the Pluckemin Artillery Cantonment, America’s first military academy.  A National and New Jersey historic site, the Vanderveer House interprets 18th century Dutch-Colonial life through the Vanderveer and Knox families and underscores the Pluckemin Cantonment’s role in helping the Continental Army to defeat the British during the American Revolution. Visitors to the Jacobus Vanderveer House & Museum delight in seeing fully furnished period rooms and exhibits including The Kitchen Hearth Exhibit, The Vanderveer Parlor, The Knox Bedroom, The 1813 Main Parlor, and The Lumber Room. Guest also have an opportunity to view the award-winning video, “In Quarters Comfortable and Clever:  The Continental Artillery, Pluckemin, New Jersey 1778-1779”, which depicts what the Pluckemin artillery encampment looked like at the time of General Knox’s command.
