Washington Crossing, PA 18977
It’s no secret that our local area is filled with an intriguing history. From all the way up north in Milford, New Jersey, down to the history-rich town of Titusville; there’s just so much to take in.
But, one event that takes the cake for the most well-known historical event is by far George Washington crossing the icy Delaware River. Since most locals are well aware of the significance of this event, we’ll spare you from a quick history lesson.
