The History of New Bridge Landing
One of our favorite place to photograph is New Bridge Landing which served as a battleground, fort, encampment ground, military headquarters, and intelligence-gathering post in every year of the American revolution.
The Steuben House
The Steuben House, a state historic site, is the only existing building remaining from the 1776 retreat through Bergen County, the retreat to victory. The house was Washington's h.q. while 14,000 soldiers camped nearby for two weeks in 1780. It has been the Bergen County historical society's h.q. Since 1939. Hall is only open for events; the grounds are open dawn to dusk. Our collections were begun in 1902 when the organization was founded. They represent the largest collection of artifacts and documents reflecting the history of Bergen County. The different building offers our couple a very rustic look right in the middle of a city.
We have use of a barn three different type of homes one of which is the Steuben House is an artifact of the revolution. It memorializes the "Drillmaster of the American Revolution," major-general Baron Von Steuben. The bridge that crosses the Hackensack River that looks like it is right out of the movie, The Bridges of Madison County offering our client a different look in the same location. The 1889 swing bridge is now a pedestrian crossing connecting Teaneck/new Milford, and River Edge/Hackensack. Here is a little more history of new bridge landing Alexander Hamilton at new bridge lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway smash-hit musical, Hamilton, based on Ron Chernow’s 2004 biography, has not only revived interest in this nation’s first treasury secretary.R
Alexander Hamilton, but it perhaps also might be credited with preserving his portrait on the ten-dollar bill. In connection with hamilton's topicality, this letter, addressed from him while he served on Washington’s staff at New Bridge Landing. He offered insight into its writer’s gloomy outlook on the war effort. He began to grow disdain for weak and indecisive government. It also highlights new bridge’s intricate involvement in the American Revolution as a battleground, military headquarters, and intelligence post. It was repeatedly occupied and contested by both armies. Give us a call to setup up your engagement photos with David Eric Photography and get a little bit of country in the city!
