Join us as we journey back to the 1760’s, a time just before the American Revolution, when New Jersey was embroiled in another earlier conflict known as the French and Indian War. Come see first-hand what military life was like in the colonies before we fought to become an independent nation. Visitors are invited to experience a typical day in the life of a soldier stationed at the barracks, and to interact with the people who cooked, slept, drilled, and lived within these walls. Take a tour of the barracks itself, which was built in 1758 for the purpose of housing these British forces.
