Welcome to History Along the LHT
As it meanders through Lawrence and Hopewell Townships, the LHT passes through many locations that reflect centuries of the diverse history of this corner of Mercer County. From ancient trees to colonial thoroughfares to abandoned grist mills to remnants of the trolley era, local history sprouts from the trail at every turn. Now the LHT is bringing this history to life for the tens of thousands of residents and visitors who use the trail each year. Eventually more than 30 historical markers like this one will be placed throughout Hopewell and Lawrence.
