Event Details

Main BranchThe Old Barracks Museum is best known for its Colonial architecture and variety of uses during the Revolutionary War, especially when it housed both British and Hessian soldiers during the Battle of Trenton on January 2, 1777.  But originally the Barracks was built by the British in 1758 during the French and Indian War in direct response to petitions  from residents who were tired of having to host soldiers in their homes.  At the time it was built, it was the second largest public building in New Jersey. 


Richard Patterson, the Executive Director of the Old Barracks, will detail the history of early Trenton, Hunterdon County, where residents were required to quarter soldiers during the French and Indian War and Britain's response.
