Overview
More
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.

We enjoyed a visit over the summer -- the outdoors area needs a little work (informational signs are missing), but the visitor center is beautifully done, you can learn a great deal in there and then go outside afterward. There are several different areas for...More

I did the guided tour of the park, the Thompson-Neely house tour, and Bowman's Tower. The guide is well worth the modest fee, as many of the exhibits are in locked buildings or cordoned-off areas. The guides are knowledgeable and are able to share their...More

It's a good place to visit with the kids. It's quiet and a relaxing place. A lot of parking space and it's free.

You can walk the grounds without paying the admission fee, but it's well worth it to pay $6 for the guided tour. Our guide was excellent, and even on a busy Saturday afternoon, we only had a small group on our tour which gave plenty...More

Great question! First, the bridge is not closed for the December 11 crossing, just on Christmas Day. To be completely honest, we're not sure how well you can hear it. We place speakers on the PA side of the river only, so it... More
