Frenchtown Borough is located along the banks of the Delaware River. Various names have been applied to this settlement after the many ferry operators residing on both sides of the river. Alexandria Ville and Frenchtown were the official names by which this community was known. The Borough was formed from Alexandria Township in 1867.
Surrounding the antique shops, art galleries, craft shops, restaurants and cafes on Race and Bridge Streets is a charming small town with many beautiful old homes, the natural beauty of the river and a walking path, which let you slip away to the past.
