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.

Overcast day but many vendors and static displays. Good for a walk and many people in period costumes. Small donation requested. Saw the big boats up close.

Great place for the toddlers to explore in a relatively small area. Watch for events that bring history alive for the youngsters.

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

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!

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
