Three Centuries of African American History in Trenton:
A Preliminary Inventory of Historic Sites

The goal of the project was to identify sites with historical significance to Trenton's African-American community. Through historical research and community input. The 34 sites identified herein represent a preliminary inventory of the city's Black historic sites, and the results suggest areas for further research and documentation. The report serves as an important step toward identifying and recognizing the significance of the African-American community's contributions to Trenton's history and heritage. The project was completed by the Historical Society with assistance from Richard Grubb & Associates, Inc. Funding was generously provided through a project grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission, a division of the Department of State.
