The Penn Ryn Estate is a magnificent riverfront estate that now serves as an event venue. The mansion dates back to 1744.
There is a canon in the center of New Hope that was present on a Union ship during the battle at Hampton Roads between the USS Monitor and The CSS Virginia. However, there is one thing that really bugs me about the display…

If you are in New Hope, you can cross the bridge and walk about six blocks. The park is at the intersection of York and George streets on the southeast corner.
There is a fantastic statue of a Winged Hussar (Husaria) in the cemetery at Our Lady of Czestochowa as well as a memorial to the Poles murdered by the Soviets in the Katyn Forest.
Bowman’s Tower is just south of New Hope. You can drive to the top of the hill to the tower. There is a small charge for admission. You can either walk up the steps or take the elevator. Either way, there are about 20 final steps to the top of the tower. Once there, the view is fantastic.
