A few reminders of the Revolutionary War period remain in this Elizabeth/Newark metropolitan area suburb. While planning the Battle for the Watchungs, Gen. George Washington often stayed at the Plainfield home of a friend, the Rev. Nathaniel Drake; today the 1746 house, at 602 W. Front St., is the headquarters of the local historical society. Another 18th-century building still in use is the 1788 Friends Meeting House at 225 Watchung Ave.; phone (908) 757-5736.
