to the Jacobus Vanderveer House and Museum, 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.

Learn about the history of the Jacobus Vanderveer House and Museum.

Watch our award-winning video, depicting the Pluckemin Cantonment.

Throughout the year, we are open for house tours, lectures, exhibits, children and school group programs featuring re-enactors, artists and Colonial craftspeople.
