In Colonial Trenton, Petty’s Run flowed through downtown
Trenton between the Statehouse and the Old Barracks to the Delaware River. Over
the years, the stream was channelized and eventually buried in a culvert (as a
pollution control measure), disappearing from view and public consciousness
until the end of the twentieth century.

Hunter Research, Inc, a Trenton-based historical and archaeological consulting
firm, and Trenton Museum Society trustee will unravel the mysteries of Petty’s
Run that his firm worked to solve and what they reveal about Trenton’s

country.
