    Brief history of the house used by General Washington, built by Dirck Dey, husband of Saartje Toers, daugher of Thomas Laurenson Toers. Their son, Theunis (Thomas) Dey, was a colonel in Washington's army. The Dey House: George Washington's Headquarters at Preakness!

    On July 4, 1780, George Washington arrived from Ramapo with his army at Totowa, where he spread out his troops, while he established his headquarters in the handsome and spacious residence of Col. Theunis Dey, at Lower Preakness.
    The Dey House was on the road leading from Laurel Grove cemetery westerly and northwesterly toward Lower Preakness and Mountain View, of being about four miles west of the Paterson city hall, and about two and a half miles from the Passaic river at the cemetery mentioned.
