Trenton History: The Immigrant Experience

A celebration of 300 years of Trenton History

 

On display June 22 – November 3, 2019

Once settlers from across the ocean began to inhabit the lands of the Lenape on the banks of the Delaware, Trenton has been home to immigrants: both to those who came here willingly, seeking jobs and opportunity for a better life, and to those who came here under duress. The William Trent House, its inhabitants, its surroundings and its circumstances represent that history. It is the history of the town, of the state, indeed of the nation.

As part of the 300th anniversary of the House and to help us shine a light on her whole story, the Trent House Association invites local and regional sculptors over the age of 18 to submit for consideration works that evoke the immigrant experience during the 300 + year history of the William Trent House and surrounding area.
