Overview

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.

This part of your Washington Crossing adventure is in Pennsylvania in Bucks County. The place is a mixture of natural beauty and history. Guided tours are $6 but you can visit the outdoors for free. We especially enjoyed Bowman's Hill tower. There are a few...More

A nice park to stroll and a historic backgroud to it. Well the museum was closed and the public toilets needed some cleaning as well

Get on the tour it is worth it. Lived here 15 years and visited the park many times, but taking the tour gave us the chance to see many things that are closed to outsiders.

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
