HOPEWELL TOWNSHIP - A group called Preservation New Jersey has released a list of what it calls the top 10 most endangered historical sites in the state.

One of the sites on the list is Jacob's Creek Crossing in Hopewell Township. The site is part of the path that George Washington took to get to the Battle of Trenton.

Mercer County wants to widen and straighten the roadway Township and build a new bridge, altering the historic wooded landscape.

Petty's Run Archaeological Site in Trenton also made Preservation New Jersey's list. The group says it too is in imminent danger of being lost. Another site on the list was The Tracy and Swartwout Buildings at Muhlenberg Regional Medical Center in Plainfield, dating back to 1903. The site is also threatened by potential development.
