The residents of Trenton, New Jersey are proud of their notable history. For 4 centuries the town has recorded the events that happened within its borders, and the Trenton Historical Society relates them for the current generation.
Trenton did not go without recreational activities, and even their picnic groves have a place in town history. The first local picnic area was Drum Darrach, where a “Fourth of July frolic” took place in 1827. Two decades later it became a recruiting camp for the Mexican War.
