Directions to Port Mercer Canal House



New Jersey Turnpike heading south: take Exit 9 (New Brunswick) and follow signs for Trenton (Route 18 north, then Route 1 south). For first-timers, navigating to Route 1 south from this exit can be difficult. Take the first right after toll booths, up ramp and onto to 18 north. Immediately, shift to lane second from left and, less than half a mile from entry point, exit left (you'll be heading over a Route 1 overpass). Stay in right lane. The exit to Route 1 south is on your right just beyond the overpass. For directions from Route 1, see below.

From Interstate 95 heading north: from DC/Philadelphia, cross Scudder Falls Bridge into New Jersey (Interstate 95 becomes Interstate 295 several miles into NJ), and exit at Route 1 North (exit 67) and follow directions below.

From southern New Jersey: take 295 north, exiting at Route 1 North (exit 67) and follow directions below.

From Route 1 (north or south): exit on Province Line Road opposite the Quaker Bridge Mall/Road and continue straight. The Canal House is just past the lights on your left before the road bends to your right.
