In 1718 King George I granted to John Wells a license to operate a ferry on this site, which provided an essential link in the establishment of the principal Stage Coach Route between Philadelphia and New York. The Landing became known as "Wells Ferry". During the Revolution, the Ferry was used to transport General George Washington Continental Troops in their Trenton campaign. Operation of the ferry ended in 1827.
