Name the New Lambs
In August 2021, Washington Crossing Historic Park will welcome four new lambs to the Thompson-Neely Farmstead. Donated by Willow Brook Farms, the new lambs (three males and one female) are Leicester Longwools: an English breed developed in the 18th century and found in George Washington’s flock at Mount Vernon.
