Event details

History buff or just want to know more about the history of our great town? Check out this event Wednesday, July 4th at the Edmonston House, 1042 Route 94 in New Windsor.

The unveiling of the Brewster’s Forge Fuller (anvil) now on loan to our museum “The Historic Edmonston House” in Vail’s Gate. Supervisor Green and the Town Board has decided that the Edmonston House with its ties to blacksmithing and its Revolutionary War history is the appropriate place for the public to see this piece of New Windsor history. The house was home to generations of blacksmiths and during the Revolutionary War it served as Headquarters to Major Generals Gates and St. Clair, it also housed the medical staff and supplies for the New Windsor Cantonment.

On July 4th at 12:30pm there will be a ribbon cutting ceremony with guest speakers:

Colin Schmitt, Chief of Staff New Windsor, Assemblyman James Skoufis, Orange Count Historian Joanna Yaun and Doc Bayne, Sterling Forest State Park Historian.

After the ceremony the public is invited to see the new Brewster’s Forge exhibit and the centerpiece of the new exhibit is the fuller. It was on this fuller the “The Great Chain” was assembled. The chain was then shipped down river and anchored to the shores of West Point and Constitution Island to keep British forces from taking control of the Hudson River and dividing the colonies in two. Since both British and American Generals wrote extensively about the need of taking control of the river in order to win the war, the chain, with its defensive fortifications kept the river under American control. By making the chain, Brewster’s Fuller played a part in America’s victory over the British. The event is free and open to the public. The Edmonston House is located at 1042 Route 94 New Windsor, NY.
