Organization of the Week: Crossroads of the American Revolution

Every Monday, I highlight a non-profit related to history or the arts, a historical society, preservation group or friends group whose main objective is to promote the historical and artistic history of New Jersey.

This week, I am featuring the Crossroads of the American Revolution. Founded in 2002, the Crossroads of the American Revolution Association is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to increase awareness of the American Revolution in New Jersey. The organization promotes the preservation of open space, historical preservation, and an enhancement of economic development in New Jersey. The Association was designated by the National Park Service as the management entity responsible for the National Heritage Area.

The Crossroads of the American Revolution National Heritage Area is a federally designated National Heritage Area encompassing portions of fourteen counties in New Jersey that were the scene of significant actions in the American Revolutionary War in late 1776 through 1778. The designated area covers the Delaware and Hudson valleys in New Jersey and the central portion of the state between the valleys where the Continental Army fought forces under British command. The National Heritage Area includes Morristown National Historical Park and sites associated with the Battle of Monmouth as well as Princeton, New Jersey, the meeting place of the Continental Congress when peace was declared in 1783.

The Crossroads of the American Revolution relies on memberships and countless volunteers at partner sites to continue its mission. For more information on programs, special events, and meetings hosted by the Crossroads of the American Revolution or to become a member, please call 609-633-2060 or visit www.revolutionarynj.org.
