Lambertville

A gathering of antiques shops, eclectic galleries and comfortable coffee shops clustered on the banks of the scenic Delaware River makes Lambertville a haven for artists and craftsmen. And the town's architecture is as interesting as its residents.
 
Lambertville was founded in 1705, and its charming streets are lined with well-preserved federal townhouses and Victorian homes. A restored 19th-century train depot houses Lambertville Station, a popular waterside restaurant and a cozy inn. Open to visitors, the 1816 James Wilson Marshall House Museum is also the headquarters of the Historical Society of Lambertville.
 
Hidden treasures are everywhere in “The Antiques Capital of New Jersey.” Three days a week, the Golden Nugget Antiques Market offers a large outdoor and indoor market of rare finds. The People’s Store has more than 40 dealers on three floors.
 
Vintage wares – and more shops – are centered on Bridge, Main and Union streets. Try Gallery of Fine Art for attentive service, fair pricing and lovely artwork.
