Washington Crossing Historic Park’s 2019 Evening with the Curator series will launch Sunday, April 14 at 7 PM with a gallery tour of the new Visitor Center exhibit titled “A Glorious Enterprise: Washington’s Crossing of the Delaware.”
Park curator Kimberly McCarty will host an exclusive Evening with the Curator exploring the new exhibit. Capacity is limited to the first 30 registrants. Registration is open until April 12 or when capacity is reached.
The long-term exhibit explores the Christmas night crossing in 1776 and the Continental Army’s encampment at the Thompson-Neely House during the days that preceded it. Authentic and reproduction objects shape a family-oriented, tactile experience.
“While we understand the importance of the larger context, and connecting the crossing to those battles, we want to tell the story of what happened here and connect our visitors to the very ground upon which they are walking,” McCarty says.
