Next on the list was State Tag#106 Drake House.


I thought I knew where I was going.
But just let me say, that I found it faster than I thought I would.
Continuing on the road the Library and Monument Park were on it was right at the end.

I am not familiar with this area or the history so here is a snippet from their web-site.

"Plainfield's historic link with its colonial past, was built in 1746 by Isaac Drake as a home for his son, Nathaniel. Today it is a City-owned public museum administered by the Historical Society of Plainfield.
It was at the Drake House that George Washington consulted with his officers during and after The Battle of Short Hills, fought over the entire Plainfield area on June 25-27, 1777."

Here is a link for the Drake House Museum.
