Transformed by the Industrial Revolution from an agrarian economy to a hub for manufacturing, commerce, and transportation, Lambertville has been rediscovered as a regional destination.   

Our history is rich. Lambertville was a geographical hub during the Battle for Independence.  George Washington walked on the earth beneath our feet. His army encamped where the bank now stands on Bridge Street and actually slept here at the Holcombe Farmstead on North Main Street. He crossed the Delaware on December 25, 1776 just south of our City.  In 1915, the Liberty Bell was carried on a train that ran on the railroad tracks across Bridge Street.   

Named the most picturesque small towns in New Jersey by USA Today and one of America’s 15 prettiest towns by Forbes, the City of Lambertville a special place to visit and Lambertville is a great place to live.

With its eclectic Zagat-rated restaurants, thriving arts and antique community, one of a kind specialties shops and award winning hotels and B&B’s, Lambertville has become a year-round destination.

Lambertville prides itself on its natural beauty and small-town friendliness. Its well-maintained historic homes and commercial buildings, protected open space & parks and river views provide active recreational opportunities for adults and children.  All of which contributes to the high quality of life enjoyed by its nearly 4,000 residents.

But if you live you here, it’s the caring and compassion that residents extend to each other and all to those who visit our city.
