Overview

The 500-acre Washington Crossing Historic Park (PA) hosts thousands of visitors every year, from local schoolchildren to visitors from around the world, who come to see the point from which a battered and dispirited American army launched a counterattack that reversed its long losing streak, preserving its will to fight and maintaining the revolutionary spirit that would lead to independence for the United States. But Washington Crossing Historic Park represents much more than a single event. Restored Colonial buildings in the park, such as the Thompson-Neely House and McConkey Ferry Inn, give many clues about living conditions during the Revolutionary era. Later, homes and shops reveal how 19th-century rural Pennsylvanians lived and worked. Among them are the home of a prosperous merchant, a village general store, and homes for skilled artisans. The park also contains Bowman's Hill Tower, Revolutionary War soldiers' graves, stone memorials, picnic pavilions and historic collections.

I found the websites for this historical landmark to be more than confusing. Is it in Pennsylvania or New Jersey? As it turned out, there are visitor centers on both sides. On the Pennsylvania side, the visitor center is located in the town of Washington...More

The museum was nice and warm for such a cold day. The shop was small but interesting and the staff was friendly and helpful.

The fall colors and the quite and the river made it feel like you could have stepped back in time. For what it's representing it was well done. Good day trip, but about an hour from anything else.

I do believe there are parts of the park that are handicap accessible. I would call the park directly-they do have a ranger station.

Absolutely - the outdoor portion is very much accessible, and there's a ramp for getting into the visitor's center. The visitor's center is very much accessible, wide open spaces in the interior. Enjoy!
