Camp History
On the grounds of Camp Daniel L. Davis, formerly known as Camp Manatawny, stands the Old Rutter Mansion. Known today as the Manor House, it is one of the oldest buildings in the state and was used as a stopping point for the underground railroad. Some notable people stayed in this historic landmark: Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, and many Africans in search of freedom.
