General Benedict Arnold established his headquarters in the Beverly Robinson House (southeast across the river near water tower) while in command at West Point. Arnold was in the house when he learned that his treason was exposed. Fleeing quickly to the river, Arnold escaped while General Washington was enroute to meet Arnold at the house for breakfast.
