Commission releases master plan for park
WASHINGTON CROSSING The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission on Monday released the master plan for Washington Crossing Historic Park. It recommends, among things, that new buildings should be compatible with the current buildings' historic construction and that the commission should work with others to adopt a new strategic plan for financial sustainability.
The park, established in 1917, commemorates Gen. George Washington's leading his troops across the Delaware River for a surprise attack on Hessian troops at Trenton during the Revolutionary War.
Since its creation the park has grown to encompass 500 acres and more than 40 buildings. The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission is the official history agency of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. - Ben Finley
