TRENTON, NJ - The Old Barracks Museum Association recently held its 112th Annual Membership Meeting in Trenton, NJ where South Brunswick fresident John G. O’Sullivan was elected president.
O’Sullivan, a resident of Monmouth Junction, and his wife Jacqueline, have been members of the association for more than 14 years.
The Old Barracks was built in 1758 for housing British troops fighting the French and Indian War.
The barracks is also linked to the Battle of Trenton where George Washington won the battle after crossing the Delaware during the Revolutionary War.
The Old Barracks Museum is located next to the State Capital building in Trenton.
“The Old Barracks Museum stands for the teaching and preservation of colonial history during the revolutionary time in New Jersey history," O’Sullivan said after taking office. "Over 12,000 students and 6,000 walk-ins, including several hundred foreign visitors visited our site last year."
In addition, the Old Barracks Museum was seen on the FOX Network show “Strange Inheritance”, highlighting George Washington’s wallet, which is displayed there.
Mr. O’Sullivan is a former Township Councilman of South Brunswick Township.
