Thaddeus Kosciuszko National Memorial Review

A Polish general who later became a national hero in his homeland, Kosciuszko came to the United States in 1776 to help fight in the Revolution; he distinguished himself as one of the first foreign volunteers in the war. The plain three-story brick house, built around 1776, in 2009 launched a series of new exhibits that feature a rotating collection of artifacts from six museums in Poland to help depict Kosciuszko's life in his homeland. An eight-minute film (in English and Polish) portrays the general's activities during the Revolution.

    Another little historic set of rooms

    A modest historic house, pretty much modernized inside except for a recreation of Kosciuszko's rooms. Short hours.
