aerial_2010_LeckThe Abbott Marshlands are a regionally significant natural area and a nationally important archaeological site. Recently the area, once known as the Hamilton – Trenton- Bordentown Marsh, has been renamed the Abbott Marshlands. It is named after Charles Conrad Abbott (1843-1915), naturalist and archaeologist, who brought much attention to the area through his nature and archeological writings.


Presented by:  The City Museum of Trenton at Ellarslie, the Tulpehaking Nature Center, Mercer County Park Commission, the New Jersey State Museum, and Friends for the Abbott Marshlands in Partnership with D&R Greenway Land Trust

Replacement Sign Installed

Replacement sign installed

A replacement sign at the junction of Crosswicks Creek and Watson Creek was installed on July 7th. It is a navigation aid for paddlers wishing to explore Watson’s Creek and going to Watson Woods/ Roebling Park.

The original sign, had fallen and was overgrown and no longer visible. That sign was part of canoe and kayak trail, ‘A Ride with the Tide through the Marsh,’ installed in ~ 1996.



The new sign was designed, produced, and installed by Zienowicz Signs. Funding was provided by the Friends for the Abbott Marshlands.
