Nulelìntàm èli paan (Lenape, ‘I am glad because you came’)

The Abbott Marshlands are situated in Lenapehoking, the traditional and ancestral homeland of the Lenape.  We pay respect to the Lenape, past present and future, and to their continuing cultural heritage and connection with this homeland.

The Marshlands include over 3000 acres of open space in central New Jersey adjacent to the Delaware River between Trenton and Bordentown. Their diverse habitats – freshwater tidal and non-tidal marshes and swamps, ponds, and woodlands – are home to many kinds of plants and animals.

Abbott Farm National Historic Landmark

The Marsh is named for the Abbott Farm National Historical Landmark, a federal designation recognizing its importance of one of the most significant archeological sites on the east coast.  In the late 19th century, Charles Conrad Abbott, a writer, naturalist, and amateur archeologist drew the attention of the world to Marshlands through his collecting of artifacts and writings speculating on the antiquity of man in the new world.
