Thompson-Neeley House

Historic Site

Photo of Thompson-Neeley House

The Thompson-Neely House served as a temporary regimental army hospital during Washington’s winter campaign of 1776/1777. Ill and injured soldiers were brought to this home of the Thompson and Neely families for medical treatment and recovery. A young officer from Virginia named James Monroe, who was seriously injured during the First Battle of Trenton, convalesced here. In 1817, he became the fifth president of the United States.

The house is part of the Washington Crossing Historic Park and is only open for guided tours, which are offered every day from 10 AM to 4 PM. The house and grist milll are closed beginning January 2 and reopen in mid-March.
