Centre Bridge, PA

Originally Called Reading's Ferry

Just three miles north of New Hope is Centre Bridge, a major stopping off point for the River Road traveler.

Originally named Reading’s Ferry, after the proprietor of the original ferry at this point, the town’s bridge connects to Stockton. In 1923, the original wooden toll bridge was struck by lightning and destroyed by fire. Edward Willis Redfield, who lived in a farmhouse just north of the bridge, later depicted it in a famous painting.

Centre Bridge Inn, also rebuilt after several fires, sits at the crossroads of River Road, Routes 32, and 263, as it has for 200 years. Visitors can enjoy fine dining with a view at the inn, or grab a burger and milkshake on the patio across the street at local favorite Dilly’s at Centre Bridge.

Shad’Toberfest Canceled

As you may have heard, Lambertville was devastated by flooding from Ida.
We decided to cancel Shad’Toberfest. This decision was not made lightly. However, we could not burden the already stressed infrastructure of the City. The festival brings thousands of visitors to Lambertville and that burden would not help our City right now.
The need in Lambertville is great with over half the homes in the City affected by Hurricane Ida’s unprecedented flooding.
There are some people that will spend a year getting their house back to a livable condition and some who will never return to their beloved homes because of the severe damage they sustained. In light of this tragedy, we are working on a fundraiser to benefit those flood victims hit hardest by Hurricane Ida. Stay tuned for details.
