Little Meadows Camp
    View looking east on U.S. Rt. 40; sign for Little Meadows is on the right side (south) of the highway just beyond the small bridge at center of picture. Be careful; pulloff area is very small and rough!

    The area just around the sign does not give a good representation of the camp area; it is rather boggy. When one looks north one can see that the shallow valley is a good grazing meadow, hence the name "Little Meadow." In this area good forage for the animals was relatively scarce since the land was not cleared and under cultivation as it is today.

    Unlike most camps, this site had a small stockade set up by the advance party. Nothing remains to be seen. This camp was used for about two weeks while the army reorganized. Little Meadow was also a stopping place for George Washington in 1753-1754 and in his post war travels west.
