Settled in 1679, Trenton looks back on more than 300 years of tumultuous history. Scene of the two Battles of Trenton in 1776 and 1777 and New Jersey's State capital since 1790, Trenton embarked on the path that turned the city into a center of industry by the end of the 19th century. Trenton made wire rope, rubber, ceramics, automobiles, pianos, cigars and more. Thousands of immigrants, including Germans, Irish, Hungarians, Poles, Slovaks, Ukrainians and Italians from Europe and African-Americans from the South, flocked to the city, creating diverse neighborhoods that still give the city its distinctive flavor. From colonial mansions to Chambersburg's restaurants, from South Trenton's churches to Olmsted's Cadwalader Park, Trenton welcomes you.
