With more than 200 historic houses, battlefields, graveyards, and other sites, Crossroads provides countless opportunities to explore your own revolutionary spirit. George Washington spent more than 800 days in New Jersey during the Revolutionary War, so there’s a good chance you may cross paths with the General himself. Or you may meet up with one of our Revolutionary Neighbors enduring the daily challenges of life during wartime.
