Trenton Tours

The Trenton Historical Society has given numerous walking tours on varying subjects and offers a brochure on the Battles of Trenton.  We have prepared, with NJ Historical Commission funding, self-guided walking tours of the First Battle of Trenton fought on December 26, 1776 and the Second Battle of Trenton that took place on January 2, 1777. Trenton has a range of historic sites some of which are open to visitors for tours, among the most interesting are:

The Old Barracks Museum, hosts numerous exhibits that illuminate Trenton’s colonial history and offers walk in tours for individuals as well as group tours with specialized content.

The 1719 William Trent House Museum focuses on colonial life, is open daily and their website contains a virtual tour.
