Where

This historic house and inn in Sloatsburg, New York was built circa 1755 by the Ramapo Pass pioneer, Stephen Sloat.

Captain Sloat used the house as a command post during the Revolutionary War to prevent British troops from moving north through the Ramapo Pass. The house also served as an inn where people could enjoy lodging and meals.

Revolutionary War soldiers frequented the inn and George Washington used the house as his headquarters in June of 1779.

In 1781, Stephen Sloat’s son John was accidentally killed in the house by one of the sentries his father had hired.

The front of the house was built around 1813 by Isaac Sloat, who used it as a public school and meeting place for town supervisors and judges from Orange and Rockland Counties.
