About Isaac Potts

It was at the house of Isaac Potts that General Washington had his headquarters during the memorable encampment at Valley Forge.

Valley Forge

accurate tree

Potts' forge on the Valley Cree was burnt by theBritish at the outset of the Revoltion but: "Industry also rapidly returned to Valley Forge. While the war continued, the American government established a musket factory there. A British raiding party destroyed the old forges, but Isaac and David Potts together with their relative William Dewees soon built a new forge and dam and began operations at a rolling and slitting mill."
