TRENTON, NEW JERSEY
Trenton was named for William Trent by William Trent. An early settler to New Jersey, Trent built a summer house in the area around 1719, and subsequently founded a settlement, naming it for himself. The name eventually evolved from “Trent-towne” to “Trenton.” Famous for its pivotal role in the Revolutionary War, Trenton is a city steeped in history, boasting several museums and monuments, including the Old Barracks Museum, the country’s only remaining British Barracks. But Trenton is not only for the history buff; sports fans will enjoy cheering on minor league baseball and hockey teams while art aficionados will enjoy the many galleries and the 35-acre Grounds for Sculpture park, as well as a number of theaters.
New Jersey State House: The State House Welcome Center is in the annex adjacent to the parking garage. The center has interactive exhibits about the Legislative process and the history of the State House dating back to 1792. The tour begins when you go through the visitor’s entrance located on the left group of doors. the dark red rotunda was especially beautiful with handsome portraits of the former governors; the General Assembly and Senate were also exceptional with gold-leaf moulding and an Edison-made chandelier in the former and handsome paintings in archways in the latter.
Old Barracks Museum: It’s a restored Seven Years War (French and Indian Wars 1758) and Revolutionary War Barracks with rooms reflecting the 1700’s with outstanding level of detail throughout. Guides dressed in period attire enlist troops (tour ticket holders) into George Washington’s army. The tour cost $8 for adults, $6 seniors and is 45 minutes long and starts at the top of the hour Monday-Sat 10-5pm. Saturday features free parking right behind the Old Barracks. You are free to roam around after the tour. The tour starts with a video of Washington’s 1776 crossing of the Delaware called “20 Crucial Days”, and the battles at Trenton and Princeton. Tour ticket holders learn what it was like to be a soldier in the Continental Army. How they slept, ate, spent leisure time and were generally cared for and treated are revealed in an interactive format which kids appreciate. Copies of pamphlets, articles of clothing, muskets, swords and furniture can be seen. There is a hospital with instruments of the day displayed and a real-time inoculation for small pox. Officer’s rooms as well as rank and file soldier’s accommodations are shown. There were 20 rooms with 12 soldiers per room. The second floor has a museum with small exhibit halls but no photos are allowed. It’s been a National Historic Landmark since 1972 and is a Blue Star Museum. The State Capital and the NJ State Museum are right around the corner within easy walking distance. The Trenton Visitor’s Center is right across the street.
New Jersey State Museum: to see all the exhibits and fine arts collection it was amazing. The museum was great. Archaeology, Paleontology, Art, history. This is good place for a day’s visit. Do not missed the planetarium show. Nice to know history of native Americans in NJ. Quite a few kids’ activities to keep them occupied. on business or pleasure trips during the late 1800s through the 1950s. The ethnographic collection also includes a significant collection of Alaskan Eskimo specimens. The collections provide data on the entire span of human occupation of New Jersey from prehistoric to historic 19th century.
Arm & Hammer Park: It’s clean, comfortable and not a bad seat in the house! SO much going on for kids to do. They now charge for the playground. It has all the accommodations of a major-league park on a smaller, friendlier scale. Conveniently located in Trenton near PA/NJ boundary along the Delaware River. This is a great place for families and baseball. Park usually offers either a giveaway of some sort to those who arrive early or a fireworks display at the close of the game.
Trenton Farmers Market: This is as good as it gets, with everything from seasonal produce, an outstanding BBQ joint, Hambone Opera, the iconic Pulaski Meats Polish deli, the legendary Cartridge ‘s, one of the oldest butcher shops in the country and several other Amish merchants selling baked goods, rotisserie and fried chicken and prepared foods, and grocery items. Fridays and Saturdays are magical here, the aromas, the colors, but best of all, the food!!!
