Build during the French and Indian war, the Barracks is best know for housing Hessian soldiers in December 1776. The place is steeped in history. It is also a great venue for a group outing, party or whatever.
This is not only an outstanding and very alive museum, made even better by the exceptional dedication of its staff and volunteers, but a peice of key history of NJ and the early US. Higly recommended AAA+++
