• Overview

    The Ramsaysburg Homestead is a historical park of twelve wooded acres along the Delaware River, just south of the Delaware Water Gap. The site was placed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 2004.


    The property and structures are the remains of a fifty-acre tract settled in 1795 by Irish immigrants James and Adam Ramsay in what was then New Jersey's frontier. An earlier tavern continued by the Ramsays, a store established by them and eventually a post office, a lumberyard, a sawmill, a storehouse, a blacksmith shop, tenant houses and other buildings comprised the hamlet.


    Today the tavern, barn, cottage, smokehouse and shed (all built before 1870), and represent the activity that occurred at the homestead during its heyday. The public may access the river here for fishing or to launch canoes or kayaks. An interpretive trail meanders through the mature forest highlighting the geology and hydrology along path. Multiple events are held year round.
