       The Assunpink Creek was derived from the Lenape term Ahsen’pink which means “stony, watery place. Assunpink Creek begins in Monmouth County flowing westwards into the Assunpink Wildlife Management Area, where it has been dammed to form Rising Sun Lake. The creek then continues through multiple areas before connecting to the Delaware River in Trenton, New Jersey. In 1777, during the Second Battle of Trenton George Washington lead Continental soldier into this area where they held a defensive line along the south shore of Assunpink Creek .The American soldiers successfully repelled several charges by British and Hessian soldiers across a stone bridge over the creek, and also repelled an attempt to ford the creek near its mouth.
