Just north of the New Jersey border, Tappan, New York is the site where one of the greatest historical betrayals, that of Benedict Arnold, was revealed to the world, and his co-conspirator, Major John Andre, was imprisoned and executed. 

Don't Miss:

  • The John Andre Monument, marking the very spot where Andre was hanged for espionage 

  • The ’76 House: Called the Mabie House for its owner in 1776, this historic building was where Continental troops imprisoned John Andre after arresting him and discovering his correspondence with Arnold. The building still functions as a restaurant and tavern to this day, so feel free to grab a bite to eat here. 

  • The DeWint House: where Washington made his headquarters as he presided over Andre’s trial. Visitors can get another sense of life in the 18th century. 

  • Reformed Church of Tappan: the building used for Andre’s trial.
