History is alive in the Delaware River Region
with sites and attractions from the turning point of the American Revolution and Washington's famous crossing of the river to the Whitesbog Village in Brown Mills and the Rankokus Indian Reservation.
The Trenton State House, the second oldest state house in continuous use has recently been completely renovated and is open for historic tours. Nearby the Old Barracks Museum stands exactly as it did 200 years ago when it housed British troops during the French and Revolutionary Wars.
The C.A. Nothnagle Log Cabin in Gibbstown is the oldest surviving cabin in America and the Walt Whitman House in Camden displays the beloved poets manuscripts, photographs and memorabilia. Haddonfield and Cohansey are charming villages rich in Colonial and Victorian architecture and historic Lawnside is New Jersey's first African American community incorporated as a municipality. The natural beauty of our state can be savored at the 1.1 million acre pristine Pine Barrens.
Beyond the Pine Barrens beauty lies the Delaware Bay, which is backed by bountiful farms with their "pick your own" sweet corn, tomatoes, blueberries, peaches and asparagus. In fact, "Jersey Fresh" produce and seafood can be tasted throughout the region at our famous diners, celebrated wineries, cozy brewpubs and noteworthy inns.
