Miller HouseWashington's headquarters during the battle of White Plains



Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Washington’s Headquarters Museum, also known as the Miller House, is an 18th-century style farmhouse that served as a command post for General George Washington during the Battle of White Plains in 1776. Among the items in the museum’s collection are colonial artifacts including the table and chair that were used by General Washington himself during his stay there.


The museum is the former home of the Ann and Elijah Miller family, an average colonial Westchester family whose lives were changed forever when Washington and his army fought for American independence during the Battle of White Plains, which took place virtually outside their door in October of 1776. The home was acquired as a historic house by Westchester County in 1917.
