Artist's Description

As you cross into Pennsylvania over the small Washington Crossing Bridge, there stands a three-story stone inn and tavern on your right. It was this building, the McConkey’s Ferry Inn, that served as a guard’s post during December of 1776, keeping watch over the ferry landing.

Legend claims that Washington dined here on Christmas day, prior to being rowed across to New Jersey for the fateful march to Trenton.

This is Buck’s County, Pennsylvania, named after Buckinghamshire, England.
As important as this location is to American History, I also like to think of the ladies and gentlemen who dined at the tavern and strolled along the river in a quieter day. Perhaps there was a gazebo just like this one where couples sat and watched boats going down the river in the Springtime of 1770.
