Wordless Wednesday- Washington Crossing Historic Park




 


This is the Delaware River where George Washington crossed to New Jersey for
The Battle of Trenton in 1776. It was Christmas Eve and the Delaware River
was frozen at that time.

Bucks County is one of the most beautiful areas on the East coast. It's also a historic area.

The town of Washington Crossing, Pa. is where George Washington crossed the Delaware River to go into the town of Trenton to fight the Hessians. It was one of the important battles that helped the colonies win their independence from Britain during the War of Independence.

Today was a beautiful day. We had  lunch at the Washington Crossing Inn located on the bank of the Delaware River

After lunch, we walked around and I took some photos. .

Since it was built in 1905, it is very narrow and many drivers hold their breath when they drive across

    1. Beth,
      That is true that we are so full of history. At Christmas time, they re enact the crossing of the Delaware in full costume... lot's of fun with hot chocolate - ( if it ever becomes cool here - our fall has been in the 80's instead of the 50's )

  6. Oh beautiful!! I love historic sites like that. We actually lived not too far south of there for a couple years, but that was one site I never had the chance to visit.

      I think sometimes we forget about the things that are nearby and tend to plan trips

  13. I love seeing different bits of history. My favorite is when I see it in person but on someone's blog is the next best thing.

  14. Judee,

    Thanks for joining my not-so WW linky party this week. I'm sorry for the slow visit but you know how life goes sometimes, right? Anywho, I really loved this photo series! What a magnificent, historical spot to visit and photograph!! I'd love to see this place and to capture it. There's something magical and special about seeing places where great figures once walked. Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend! ;)

      It is only half hour from where I live and we take all of our guests there when they visit from out of town.
