One of a few houses used as Washington's HQ. This is one of the finest historic-house museums in the country. It is a wonderful place to do research. A Colonial style home with a Victorian interior with touches of Colonial and Falderal styling.

Here are two pictures of my model of the Alexander Douglas home which served as Washington's HQ after 2nd Trenton. I use it for for a variety of battles. It has a similar paint scheme to the Longfellow house.

Beautiful model of the Alexander Douglas house. Did you build it yourself?

Wow, impressive indeed. All of the buildings on that table look awesome. Nice job.

After I did some research I commissioned master model maker David Marshall to build it. It was easier to research because the house still exist.


He also built for me the the Old Trenton Barracks, the Quaker Friends Meeting House, the Pott's home and the Abraham Hunt house.

Below is a link to my Flickr page for my Trenton game. If you click on the hot button below the word Trenton it has all the info, credits and where I conducted research.


The barracks and the Quaker church still exist so that helped quite a bit. If you look around my page you will find the album for my 2nd Trenton game and Princeton.


My Princeton game.

Actually only half of the barracks still exist. Stuff looks great, very inspiring.
