The Dey Mansion, located in modern day Wayne, New Jersey and originally known as “Bloomsbury Manor,” played an intricate role in the American Revolution. Built by Dutch settlers in the middle of the 18th century it served as Washington’s Headquarters on several occasions.

The Dey Mansion is of Georgian style architecture with Dutch and English influences, and was built on a 600 acre lot in Preakness Valley, now present day Wayne, NJ. The Mansion was built facing the south in order receive sunlight. Each floor of the two story mansion features a long and wide center hall with multiple rooms on each side and an attic that spans the entire length of the mansion.
