Steuben House is a historic Revolutionary landmark. George Washington was headquartered here for 16 days in 1780. But it’s also known for a ghost who visited in 1951. Former resident Gen. F.W.A. Von Steuben, according to legend, paid a visit to his former home, sitting in a chair and having a conversation with a woman who was in the home at the time. The ghost asked the woman to tell him how the Revolutionary War was going, but when the woman told him that the war had been over for some 200 years, the flabbergasted ghost disappeared.
