Crossroads of the American Revolution National Heritage Area

William Trent, a wealthy Philadelphia merchant (later Chief Justice of New Jersey) built this country manor house circa 1719, at the highest navigable point of the Delaware River. An important Hessian guard post was sited on the grounds the morning of the Battle of Trenton. The French army under General Rochambeau camped on the grounds September 1-2, 1781, on the march to Yorktown, Virginia, and September 4-8, 1782, on its return. The house is furnished according to the inventory taken after Trent's Christmas Day 1724 death, while the exhibit in an outbuilding includes later house history, particularly its role in the Revolution.
