Newtown has a long history with our nation. The Historic Association was formed after a historic brownstone was torn down by developers in 1962. It had been built in 1757 and was "Washington's Headquarters." It was not the exact same building as the headquarters but was built from the same material on the same foundation. This was the place Washington used as his headquarters after The Battle of Trenton in 1776.
