We are so lucky to have such history right in our backyard! One amazing bonus of living in our Newtopias is the close connection to historical events and buildings. It’s almost easy to forget the rich history we are surrounded by in our day-to-day lives. This reenactment achieves a sense of colonial patriotism and reminds us that Washington Crossing was not always about peaceful walks on the old trade canal or soccer games in the park where our very own colonial soldiers set up camp. the Washington Crossing Historic Park
