NOTE: This virtual lecture has reached capacity and registration is closed. Thank you for your interest!
Washington Crossing Historic Park curator Kimberly McCarty will give a free virtual lecture discussing the roles of 18th century ferries and taverns on Sunday, October 18 at 1:30 PM. McConkey’s Ferry Inn — the building in which Washington wrote of his plan to cross the Delaware River — will be highlighted.
Located in town centers and along major transportation routes, ferries and taverns were community hubs where people could eat, rest, and share the latest news about America’s struggle for independence.
The lecture will be held virtually through Zoom. Meeting information is provided upon registration.
