Pluckemin Artillery Cantonment 3D

The Pluckemin Artillery Cantonment, located in Bedminster Township, New Jersey, is the site of America’s first military training academy. It was built 24 years before the United States Military Academy at Westpoint, and served as the Continental Army’s winter cantonment from 1778 to 1779.

While there are no extant buildings surviving at this site, significant archeological work and other historical records permitted the creation of a preliminary 3D reconstruction of the buildings that were physically located on the site. This preliminary 3D visualization can be used as an interpretive guide for visitors at the Jacobus Vanderveer House Museum so they may understand the importance of the Pluckemin Artillery Cantonment to American Revolution history. In addition, the preliminary 3D visualization can serve as a guide for more detailed 3D visualization.
