Washington Slept Here

Take a walk up Hopkins Street to the little red
house and you will finally be at a place “where George
Washington slept”. Stephen Hopkins, his host was one of
the few signers of both the Declaration of Independence
and the US Constitution. One of Washington’s most
important visits came less than a month before we
declared Independence on May 4, 1776 before any of the
other colonies. Since they were plotting treason the details
are secret but Washington must have been spinning with
revolutionary dreams when he put his head on the pillow.
