Washington Crossing Historic Park

On Christmas night, 1776, Gen. George Washington and his revolutionary troops met here to secretly cross the Delaware River, so that they could surprise the British and Hessian troops presumably celebrating in Trenton, several miles south. The park has been preserved as both a historic and nature area by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.The park is in two sections: the lower park holds the visitor center and several buildings, and the upper park once functioned as an infirmary during the battles and an original grist mill. The visitor center video tells of the 10 days from the time of the crossing through the revolutionaries’ victories at Trenton and Princeton.
