Additional Details:
The Carlyle House was erected by John S. Carlyle in 1732. In 1755, the details of Braddock's expedition against Fort Duquesne were arranged here by that unfortunate officer and the governors of New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina. With the exception of one or two changes, which time has rendered necessary, the room in which the conferences took place remains as it then was.
