Cradle of Liberty

Located 36 miles northeast of Philadelphia, the community surrounding Petro Bordentown is a fountain of history that stretches back to the American Revolution.

Every grammar-school history student learns about the powerful influence that Thomas Paine’s pamphlet, Common Sense, had in igniting the flame of liberty and uniting the American Colonies during the Revolutionary War. You might be surprised to learn that its famous author, one of the United States’ seven Founding Fathers, called Bordentown home. His bronze statue stands defiantly in Bordentown’s Thomas Paine Park today.

Thomas Farnsworth, an English Quaker, was the Bordentown area’s first European settler in 1682. He built a new home on the windswept bluff overlooking the broad bend in the Delaware River. Farnsworth’s cabin was situated near the northwest corner of today’s Park Street and Prince Street. “Farnsworth Landing” soon became the center of trade for the region.

When strolling down historic, lamp-lined Farnsworth Avenue, Bordentown’s main street today, you’ll see many picturesque, beautifully preserved, yet colorful 18th century homes set closely together. You’ll see many families proudly proclaiming their heritage by flying the American flag.

Charming shops, small, cozy restaurants and centuries-old churches can be discovered throughout the town that brings history to life. You can even see the original schoolhouse where Clara Barton, known to Civil War buffs as the “Angel of the Battlefield” and founder of the American Red Cross, also opened New Jersey’s first free public school—and still bears her name today.

Another remarkable history factoid is that Joseph Bonaparte, former King of Naples and Spain and brother to Napoleon I of France, established his residence here. He associated with men of great fame including Henry Clay, Daniel Webster and John Quincy Adams, the future 6th U.S. president.

If you have time while at Petro Bordentown, venture over to the nearby town for a trip back in time and an unforgettable lesson in American history.
