What we're about

In 1677, the Quakers who sailed from England on the ship Kent and landed in Burlington bought from the Lenape Indians the land between Assunpink Creek (Trenton) and Rancocas Creek along the Delaware River. This namesake Penn Paddle is nearly that entire distance. Lenape Chief Ockanickon, a friend of the Quakers, is buried in the property’s grave yard. In 2019, the Penn Paddle expanded from the namesake paddle to a series of paddles on the Delaware River and its tributaries.
