Revolutionary War Heritage TrailOn this site stood the Van Pelt House, portions of which dated to the late 17th Century. During the Revolutionary War, local farmers like the Van Pelts saw their homes used to quarter British and Hessian officers as well as American prisoners. The house was dismantled for the creation of the park in the mid-twentieth century, one of many such events that have marked the disappearance of Kings County's rural past.
