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.
- The New Jersey State House has a long and varied history that can be explored through in-person guided tour or an on-line virtual tour.
