LAMBERTVILLE, NJ – If you were unable to take the self-guided walking tour of the 20 sites on the “Lambertville Then and Now” exhibit in the fall of 2020, or would just like to see it again, we are pleased to announce that it is now available as a virtual tour that can be experienced from the comfort of your own home.
The virtual tour can be accessed from the “History” menu on the Lambertville Historical Society website www.lambertville historical society.org. A quick link to start your tour is available here: www.lambertvillehistoricalsociety.org/thenandnow .
Lambertville, NJ was incorporated as a town in 1849 and as a city in 1872. From the mid-1800s to the early 1900s the ferry, the canal, the railroad, and the Old York Road stagecoach route all contributed to the development and industrialization of Lambertville.
The historic exterior images on this virtual tour date from the mid-1800s to the early 1900s and include such things as factory buildings, mansions, a theatre, stores, halls, and more.
The virtual tour has been updated to include a modern image next to the historic image of the site. You can also read a bit about the history of each site.
You will notice that some of the buildings have barely changed in over 150 years, some have changed a great deal and some no longer exist. We hope you enjoy learning just a little bit of the history of some of the iconic buildings in Lambertville, NJ.
The Lambertville Historical Society is a nonprofit organization that promotes, inspires, and encourages the preservation and appreciation of Lambertville’s architecture and history through education, community involvement, and through preserving and maintaining the James Wilson Marshall House.
