New Brunswick, New Jersey: Revolutionary History in Home of Rutgers University
In 1776, New Brunswick was the site of one of the first public readings of the Declaration of Independence; it took place just one day after the document was publicly proclaimed in Philadelphia. The city earned this honor through more than a century of settlement, during which it became an important port for traders and travelers. Today, you can tour New Brunswick’s many historic sites, including the Buccleuch Mansion, where George Washington was a frequent guest. Another is Rutgers University’s Geology Hall, which was built in 1872. It now houses the Geology Museum’s exhibits of fossils, Native American artifacts, and an Egyptian mummy. Keep your eyes peeled for plaques noting historical locations while you explore downtown New Brunswick.
