Property Description

Trenton has been rewarding visitors with rich cultural and heritage experiences for 300 years. This rich history comes alive at Trenton's oldest surviving homestead, the 1719 William Trent House. This central hall brick mansion overlooking the Delaware River was built in the then latest "Georgian" style of architecture by William Trent, one of the founders of the City of Trenton, between the years 1714 and 1719. Open daily for tours. Groups by appointment. Now declared a National Landmark it was once the country seat of William Trent, a Philadelphia merchant, his family and servants - enslaved and free. Guided tours of the recently restored and refurbished house and gardens provide a glimpse of the diversity of life within this unique household.
