Did you know that when you approach the White Horse circle from Bordentown that you are entering one of the oldest and most historic areas in Mercer County? As you cross the bridge crossing Crosswicks Creek, you are passing by the old draw bridge that was there during the Colonial era. There was a rebel skirmish at that location back during the Revolutionary war. Furthermore, as you pass by and look to your right, along the NORTH shore of Crosswicks Creek, You are looking at the site of the former Robert Pearson House; long since removed and now the approximate location of an apartment complex. As you reach the infamous White Horse Circle and make your turn on to Sout Broad Street. The site of the very historic White Horse Tavern comes into view. (See the Google Map; I have superimposed the old tavern on its original site.) That's your history lesson for today.
