Overview
More
The 500-acre Washington Crossing Historic Park (PA) hosts thousands of visitors every year, from local schoolchildren to visitors from around the world, who come to see the point from which a battered and dispirited American army launched a counterattack that reversed its long losing streak, preserving its will to fight and maintaining the revolutionary spirit that would lead to independence for the United States. But Washington Crossing Historic Park represents much more than a single event. Restored Colonial buildings in the park, such as the Thompson-Neely House and McConkey Ferry Inn, give many clues about living conditions during the Revolutionary era. Later, homes and shops reveal how 19th-century rural Pennsylvanians lived and worked. Among them are the home of a prosperous merchant, a village general store, and homes for skilled artisans. The park also contains Bowman's Hill Tower, Revolutionary War soldiers' graves, stone memorials, picnic pavilions and historic collections.

Get on the tour it is worth it. Lived here 15 years and visited the park many times, but taking the tour gave us the chance to see many things that are closed to outsiders.

There's little of value honoring the Battle of Trenton, a battle that might have saved the revolution, actually in Trenton. There are some historic buildings, a very nice visitors center, and a well maintained grounds. There's some good signage to explain things. If you want...More

Very interesting parks on both side of the Delaware. The Pennsylvania side is nicely manicured. The NJ side is bit shaggy. But the NJ visitors center is really nice. Very "home grown" but tons of interesting artifacts and exhibits. There's also a movie that you...More

Great question! First, the bridge is not closed for the December 11 crossing, just on Christmas Day. To be completely honest, we're not sure how well you can hear it. We place speakers on the PA side of the river only, so it... More

I see there is a tour for $6/person. How much time should we allow and how far in advance should we make reservations? What is the earliest time they start? Thanks!
