Local Trenton Information
Trenton is the capital of New Jersey and the seat of Mercer County; it has a population of about 85,000. Trenton was originally established by the Quakers in 1679 and was the site of George Washington’s first military victory over the British – the Battle of Trenton. This is the battle in which he famously led his troops across the icy Delaware River to surprise the British and Hessian troops encamped on the other side.
Today, parts of Trenton are Urban Enterprise Zones. Among other things, that means that the sales tax in those areas is just 3.5%. Trenton is just 30 miles away from Philadelphia and just over 50 miles away from New York City. Trenton is bordered by Ewing, Levitton, Lawrence, and Hamilton. US Route 1, Route 29, and Route 129 run through Trenton and provide access to I-195, I-295, and the New Jersey Turnpike.
When you visit our Trenton office, you can stop for lunch at Killarney’s Publick House across the street. For a bit of history, hop on Highway 295 and head east on Route 29 to get to the Old Barracks Museum. Built in 1756 during the French & Indian War, the Barracks played a crucial role in the Revolutionary War; today it is the last remaining British barracks in the US. If you’re hungry, the Trenton Farmers Market is just 10 minutes away from either the Barracks Museum or our office.
