Status: Progress Made
Since New Jersey suffered the greatest losses to persons and property in the Revolutionary War, some or most of New Jersey state-owned sites have a national significance in association with the War for Independence, notably Monmouth Battlefield, Washington’s Crossing, Hancock House, Indian King Tavern, Steuben House, and Trenton Battle Monument. Our experiment in Republican democracy was partly invented by the political culture of New Jersey and therefore these sites are associated with distinctive national origins. Architecturally, these sites represent mostly vernacular building types. Some, such as the Steuben House (Jersey Dutch gambrel sandstone) and Hancock House (dated brick-end) are especially associated with New Jersey and represent a variety of building traditions from the early days of our state and nation.
