So Much History in . . .
Sep 2019 • Solo
. . . Such a small space. And a tribute to what a group of dedicated volunteers and history bluffs can do to collect and preserve the history of a man, his family and his (their) town.

So, while the building and museum is about James Marshall, it is also a great resource for learning about the history of Lambertville from its origins as a river town. There is also a helpful video that tells the story of the man and the town.

In the end, a visit here will not be a life-altering experience, but it can be a very nice learning opportunity.

Great Little Historical Site

This is a tiny little museum. It's a gem of a building. It's open on the weekends. You can go inside and see how people lived in the past hundreds of years. It was built in 1816 and is now the headquarters of the Lambertville historical society. It's the boyhood home of James Wilson Marshall who discovered gold in California . There's a really unique story here. I highly recommend checking it out.

This is a free, small historical home museum that is only open on weekend afternoons from May through October but.... it gives a great overview of how the Delaware River town of Lambertville came to be, going all the way back to the American Revolution! James Marshall left Lambertville in the early 1800s and headed out to California. Turns out he has the distinction of being the first person to discover gold and, hence, started the Gold Rush! There are only 4 rooms and exhibitions in the entire museum but it gives a sense of what homes were like in Lambertville in the early 1800s. Upstairs is an exhibit on the history of Lambertville. They also have a video on the history of Lambertville. A very knowledge and sweet docent kindly greet you and provide a tour and answer questions. We loved it! Great for folks who want a quick overview of Lambertville on their first visit. Amazing historic quilts!
