The Trenton Ferry Historic District is a well-preserved and cohesive urban neighborhood in the City of Trenton, Mercer County, New Jersey that is locally significant under National Register of Historic Places Criterion C for its varied and distinguished collection of 19th- and early 20th-century row homes, commercial and industrial buildings and educational institutions and religious edifices. The architectural stock of the historic district is diverse and covers the full spectrum from simple, vernacular, mill workers' housing to high-style ecclesiastical buildings. Located in the southern part of the city close to the Delaware River waterfront, the district reflects a typical lower to middle class neighborhood from Trenton's heyday as a major East Coast industrial center.
