Trenton is New Jersey's capital, and for a period of two months in 1784, it was the capital of the United States. The city is located between New York City and Philadelphia and is separated from the state of Pennsylvania by the Delaware River. One of the most recognizable landmarks in Trenton is the New Jersey State House, constructed in 1792. It is the third-oldest state house in the country, and tours of the building share New Jersey history. For more New Jersey history in an even older building, visit the William Trent House, built in 1719. The founder of Trenton, William Trent, and three governors have occupied the house in its long history. It is now a museum offering tours and insight into early American life.

Cadwalader Park is a 100-acre park in Trenton, planned by the same man who designed Central Park in New York City. Enjoy the park's grassy lawns, quiet stream, walking paths, and the Ellarslie Mansion at the center, now a museum of fine art.
