This home was built in 1768 to 1770 by a Quaker named Isaac Potts who operated a grist mill nearby.  In the winter of 1777, Valley Forge became the encampment of the continental soldiers.  During that winter George Washington rented this home as his residence and military headquarters for the revolutionary war.

In January 1776, Alexander Hamilton, a young aide-de-camp, joined Washington at the Potts home to help plan the following year military campaign.  This is where Hamilton got the nickname, "the little lion" for his great energy and skills.

This ¾" thick wooden replica is handcrafted in the U.S. to reflect its historical features. It can set neatly on a shelf, wainscoting, or window/door trim to remind you of a special place you've visited or dream of visiting someday.  A short description is written on the back. Look for Casper, our mascot black cat, taking up residence within the design. This is the sign of an authentic Cat’s Meow!
