1,2. The first two images were taken about a month-and-a-half ago and the reason it says "Mansion House" is because of what stood there from 1751-1945. The Mansion House was Washington's HQ while his troops camped out on The Green after scuttling the British chase of the troops at the Hackensack River by burning down New Bridge near the Steuben House.

This was also the first stop on their retreat across NJ.

I just came across a 10 year-old post that said: "Still waiting for someone with deep pockets to buy 50 Main Street, knock it down, and rebuild the Mansion House !!!  I guess that'll have to wait till I become super-wealthy."

Well, you're in luck, JW. 50 Main just got knocked down. Got the bucks?
