Washington Crossing Historic Park will fully reopen for the spring season on Sunday, March 8 – Charter Day in Pennsylvania. Charter Day marks the date 334 years ago when England’s King Charles II signed the original Charter of Pennsylvania, which granted William Penn the land that is now Pennsylvania.
In celebration of “Pennsylvania’s birthday,” the park will offer free tours and admission to Bowman’s Hill Tower and the Thompson-Neely House from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. that day. Other activities will include blacksmithing demonstrations, military drilling by Revolutionary War reenactors and an 18th century chocolate-making demonstration in the Hibbs House.
