Crossroads unifies Revolutionary-era historic sites with new signage

Sponsorship opportunities available for businesses and organizations.

New Jersey’ Revolutionary War-era historic sites have a new way to attract visitors: distinctive Crossroads of the American Revolution signage. Featuring the six-pointed star used in the original United States flag, Crossroads’ signage program is designed to raise awareness of New Jersey’s deep Revolutionary War heritage through a prominent identity that will make it easier for tourists and residents to discover history at more than 200 sites.

Businesses can also show their support for Revolutionary heritage tourism by sponsoring signs in their host communities or around the state. Crossroads is working to place the signs in advance of the national celebration of the 250th anniversary of American independence in 2026.

Heritage tourism is a key economic driver for New Jersey, and the state’s extensive Revolutionary War history is an asset that’s yet to be leveraged to its fullest extent. Unifying local Revolutionary heritage sites across the state with common branding will make it easier for visitors to put sites into context with New Jersey’s contributions to the fight for independence.

A variety of signage options are available, including wayfinding markers, interpretive signs, map kiosks and more. View the Crossroads signage brochure for samples, and see an interpretive sign as it is installed at the Old Barracks Museum in Trenton.

As one of the original thirteen United States, New Jersey holds a unique and pivotal place in the nation’s history. Our strategic location between the new American capital in Philadelphia and British headquarters in New York meant the fight for independence was a constant, earning New Jersey the nickname “the Crossroads of the Revolution.”
