I'm sure there was a time when people would come from all over to see the historical sites in Trenton such as this, which could be nice. I don't know when the last time it was open, it looks like decades. Neighborhood looks rough. I did not want to get out of car. What a shame.

When we went to visit you could not go inside. Honestly I don't know the last time people were allowed inside. The area around it needs to be cleaned up. It's sad because Trenton is so full of history but this monument seems like it was forgotten. I read the plaque to my children and we discussed it the history... More

This monument marks the spot where the Battle of Trenton occurred after Washington and his men crossed the icy Delaware River. We were there on a Sunday and the monument was not open (but not sure if it really opens to go inside). We stopped for about 10 minutes and took photos. The location is right on the edge of... More

Commemorates the December 26th victory of Washington and his Continental Army over the Hessians occupying Trenton. Accomplished after their famously 'crossing the Delaware'. A fine Doric column with battle-related bronze reliefs at the base dedicated in 1893. Stands 150 feet above street level, with a 13 foot statue of George Washington atop it. Located on U.S. Highway 206 near Brunswick... More

Once you hear the battle of Trenton you should drive by the Battle Monument just to get a perspective of the hill it sits upon for the feel of the battle.

The monument commemorates the December 26, 1776 Battle of Trenton which was a pivotal victory for the Continental forces during the American Revolutionary War. It is a nice monument but not in the nicest area - be careful.

We did a walking tour of the Battle of Trenton and this was the starting place. Area around is a bit iffy but we walked through the neighborhood with no issues.

This is definitely not the place I'd bring my family to. I came back east on business and thought I'd do some sightseeing on the weekend. After cruising through the neighborhood - using the directions dictated by my GPS - I soon became afraid to get out of my car. It was evident almost immediately upon arriving in Trenton that...

If you ever get the chance to take the elevator to the top it's definitely worth a free visit during daylight hours. MLK Blvd, Pennington Avenue, and Brunswick Avenue can be quite dangerous at times, especially if one is walking and unfamiliar with the inhabitants and side streets. You have to really use your imagination to see the industrial city... More

After touring the Old Barracks yesterday, I drove up to get a good look at the Trenton Battle Monument. It's well documented in the other reviews that this gorgeous monument is in the middle of a part of town ravaged by urban decay which scares off some visitors but I was glad to have been able to see it up...
