History[edit]

A wooden bridge was constructed across the Delaware River in 1812 to connect Lambertville with New Hope, Pennsylvania. Bridge street was laid out to meet with the bridge. Many of Lambertville's oldest structures are located along Bridge street. A tavern on Bridge street called the Lambertville House was built by Captain John Lambert in 1812. The James W. Marshall House also on Bridge street was built in 1816. The Delaware and Raritan Canal was constructed in 1830. The Belvidere Delaware Railroad was built along the canal in 1851.[3]
