Vanderveer House

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.

Debbie Budd, owner of The Rose and Radish is a history buff, and has participated in the holiday celebration of the Vanderveer house.
