Trenton Council (362)

This is the first reference that I have located.

Trenton Area Council

Merged with Princeton Council (357) to become Trenton Area Council. I have also seen the name as Trenton Mercer Area Council, but I am not sure whether the name ever existed officially.

Mercer Area Council

This appears to be a simple name change. I am not sure about how the council developed during this period. On January 1, 1928 there were 48 troops, with 900 scouts in the Trenton area and 1127 scouts total in Mercer County.

George Washington Council
1937 to December 31, 1998

The new council included Hunterdon, Mercer and Warren Counties. However, Trenton and nearby areas did not join until later.
