Ice cream social set for William Trent House Museum birthday


The Trent House Association is celebrating the 84th birthday of the museum with an ice cream social from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday, June 4.

This is a free event and all are encouraged to come enjoy a beautiful afternoon on the grounds of the Trent House Museum at 15 Market St., Trenton, N.J., across from the Hughes Justice Complex. Plenty of free parking is available at the rear of the museum property.

While restoration of the William Trent House was completed in 1936, it wasn’t until 1939 that it officially opened as a museum with furnishings based on what Trent would have had in his home in the early 1700s. The Trent House Association began holding an ice cream social as a community birthday party for the Museum in 2014 at the 75th anniversary of its opening.

The William Trent House Museum is a National Historic Landmark in the Crossroads of the American Revolution National Heritage Area and on the Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route National Historic Trail. For more information, visit
