It was a point of hope, peace, and amiability during the Revolutionary War, even though there was quite strained relationships between the Brits and the Americans. Some time after, this building has become a point of a national heritage and a curious historic museum revealing some mysterious details about that epoch.

Originally it was revolutionary strategist Colonel Bishop's property and usual address. The man was known for his explosive character, so when his servant closed her days, there were no doubts that the story about accusing her of being a spy and about the following chase, forced by Mister Bishop, was actually the truth. Today this poor lady's spirit still resides in the Conference House.

Lots of visitors enjoy being here exploring the history remains and feeling chills imagining this horrible story.
