From www.nps.gov:

Being one of the most prosperous families of the times, the Wick family lived in a comfortable home whose construction and style reflected their New England origins. The Wick farm included a fine and roomy, well constructed home house with windows, circa 1400 acres of timber land and open fields; a perfect area for Washington's soldiers to camp for for the winter. The Wick farm and adjacent farms grew various crops including wheat, corn, rye, oats, buckwheat, apples and flax. Consequently, the Wick farm and a couple of adjacent farms became home to 13,000 soldiers during the winter of 1779-1780. The Wick farm house became winter headquarters for General Arthur St. Clair. Jockey Hollow was a popular camp ground for General Washington's army. It was used by portions of the Continental Army for a total of 24 months during the American Revolution.
