More about the areas accommodations and tourism
Ingham Creek is the primary geographic reason why the town of New Hope developed. Ingham Creek, which is also called Aquetong Creek, is fed by the Aquetong Spring that produces three million gallons of clear water every day. The volume and consistency of the water flow made Aquetong Creek ideal for milling operations. Numerous mills, powered by the water flow of Aquetong Creek, were built at various locations on the creek. This last period spanned the Revolutionary War when George Washington and his Army visited the little town and its ferry on at least four occasions. Coryell's Ferry was the staging site for George Washington's famous crossing of the Delaware five miles south of New Hope on December 25, 1776 and his victory over the Hessians at Trenton.
The Delaware Canal was opened from Bristol to New Hope in 1831. New Hope was the geographic center and the major hub of the canal system. It had four locks and an outlet lock so that boats could cross the Delaware River and enter the New Jersey canal system at Lambertville. Today you can still take barge rides on the canal, which was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1978. The railroad was completed into New Hope in 1891. Both passenger and freight trains operated daily. The last passenger train ran in 1952. Freight operations continued until the 1980's.
