Like all humans, aging takes a toll. As can be seen in the photo above, this is what today's William Trenton House looked like before it was restored to perfection. The stately old home has a magnificent history dating to 1719; well before the Revolutionary War. Note that the article gives the old structure a South Warren Street address. In the intervening years, South Warren Street is no more, having been terminated near West Front Street when Trenton began renovating the Cooper, Union, Lamberton Street area. The stately historic building is open daily from 12:30 P,M. to 4 P.M. Information can be obtained by calling 609-989-3027.

Fourth grade, Harrison School, Mrs. Emma Mohr was teacher. Our class dd a field trip to the William Trent House, I'm thinking, back in the Spring of 1956.

We kids had a grand time.

After our return to class, memberso of our class drew and painted a brown wrapping paper mural of the house and grounds , all from memory. The work was proudly displayed on our second floor bulletin board for maybe a month, then we rolled it up and drove to the Trent House and presented it to the Museum staff.

Should they ever unearth that masterpiece of primitive art at the Museum, I was one of the artists.
