The Trenton War Memorial

Trenton War Memorial

Opened in 1932, The War Memorial was built as “a great community center” dedicated to the memory of the soldiers and sailors from Mercer County who died fighting World War I. The building is a National and State Historic Site. The aim of the founding War Memorial Committee was to combine “beauty, dignity, and civic utility.” The building houses an, 1,807-seat, fully equipped theater for performances and assemblies, and also a number of stately rooms for other purposes such as meeting and conferences. The War Memorial is owned by The State of New Jersey and operated by The Department of State. The Ballroom will handle 500 cocktails, 250 for a seated dinner, and when there isn’t a performance on the stage can be rented as well.
