Extremely difficult to find. We had two different reference points that did not do it - I finally found it several blocks away by sight. Even though it is on the site of where Washington's artillery sat, it is in a dingy neighborhood and visually has no connection to the Delaware River or the barracks that are downtown. That said,...

After walking there from the NJ State Museum, this battle monument is in a very run down neighborhood. They were supposed to be open for the non-winter season on Sundays so we could take the elevator to the top. Monument is in disrepair and doesn't look like it gathers many visitors. We didn't feel safe there and quickly left. Must... More

The WEB site warns you that no food or drinks are allowed in the “historical building”. So, you assume there is some building and some history in it. Not so. There is indeed a monument in a part of town that did not look healthy to me, the door was locked with a referral to the Web site...

The monument stands 150 feet tall at the end of Warren St. It was created by John H. Duncan who also created Grant's Tomb in NY. The monument stands tall, but unfortunately the park where it sits is in sad repair. Hopefully conditions will improve. The monument should still be visited. It is impressive.

Back in the 60 this was a great attraction. I use to ride the elevator to the top and see the city of Trenton and the townships surrounding the city.

Built between1891-93, the 148' grant monument in Beaux Arts style commemorates the December 26th, 1776 Battle of Trenton. John H. Duncan designed the monument who also designed Grant's Tomb. The monument is located at "Five Points" which is where the American artillery was set up as a strategic high ground offensive. Such an important battle in the history of the... More

My 1st home was in Trenton and my wife graduated Trenton HS, so comfortable with the area at least 20 years ago. We moved allowing for our children to attend more of a suburban school district as I did. We visited the Trenton Battle Monument for the 1st time for a college graduation event and have to say the building... More

The monument is now in a depressed and somewhat dangerous area of Trenton. There is nothing there that would enrich a visitor's interest in American history. Doing a "drive-by" is best. Stay in your car.

My co-workers and I on a historic tour of the Revolutionary War Battle of Trenton. So different now once you see the history explained to you. The monument reveals and outlines the Battles of the Americans against the Germans and British during this time up and down Queen and Kings street. The 4 crossings of the Delaware River made by...

Not really a lot of info there. Very pretty monument but didn't say much about the battle- I had to look that up myself. A piece of history though
