Washington Crossing the Delaware.

Statue of Washington Crossing the Delaware

This statue of General Washington leading his army across the Delaware River is really quite impressive. Keep in mind its not part of the state park. It's at a nice event venue, so be careful not to become a wedding crasher during someone's special day!

Statue of Washington Crossing the Delaware

The statue is on the grounds of the Washington Crossing Inn, which has a lovely garden and outdoor dining from which you can walk to the statue. The statue is still impressive. Needs a power wash. Across River Road is the Crossing state park, which is getting a much needed makeover.
