A Look Back at Lambertville in 1949

The Delaware River Town charm traces back hundreds of year, to the roots of the communities that now make up the riverside communities. Lambertville dates back to 1703, when the council of West Jersey purchased the land from the Delaware Indians shortly followed by Lambertville’s first resident, John Holcombe, purchasing 350 acres north of the first survey line.
“The Lambertville Story” provides a glimpse back in time to Lambertville, New Jersey at the turn of the century as the community came together to solve a problem.
The charming character of the town as well as the the strong community spirit remain in tact more than sixty years later. Take a look back:

Shad’Toberfest Canceled

As you may have heard, Lambertville was devastated by flooding from Ida.
 
We decided to cancel Shad’Tober. The decision was not reached 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.
