Mission and Vision
MISSION: The Trent House Association in cooperation with the City of Trenton works to enhance the historical integrity and interpretation of the 1719 William Trent House Museum through stewardship of the Association’s furnishings collection and public programming.
VISION: To bring the 1720s alive for the 21st Century through an accurate and dynamic presentation of the Trent House.
Since the opening of the 1719 William Trent House Museum in 1936, volunteer groups supported the Museum's mission. Incorporated in 1957 and designated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit in 1975, the Trent House Association serves as the Museum's perpetual caretaker. The Association conducts programs, events, interpretive aids and exhibits as well as supporting ongoing research on the history of the Trent House and its residents and is committed to enhancing public knowledge and understanding of that history with our findings.
