MINT DIRECTOR BOUDINOT'S HOME OPEN TO VISITORS IN MAY

The Daily Record of Morris County, New Jersey reports that the
home of an early U.S. Mint Director will be the center of a
charitable event expected to draw some 20,000 people in upcoming
weeks.

"The Federal-era Ross farmhouse, set on 61 acres of pastures
and woods, was built in 1771 by Elias Boudinot, who frequently
invited Gen. George Washington to dinner during the two winters
he was encamped in nearby Jockey Hollow -- 1777 and 1779-80.

Boudinot, a lawyer, held various leadership positions in the
fledgling American government and was a signatory to the document
that preceded the Treaty of Paris, which ended the American
Revolution. After the war, he served three terms in the House
of Representatives. In 1795 Washington appointed him director
of The United States Mint, a position he held until he retired
10 years later."
