Titusville is an unincorporated village and Census Designated Place in Hopewell Township, Mercer County, New Jersey.

Titusville is the location of Johnson's Ferry (later named Taylor's Ferry), which was the scene of Washington's crossing of the Delaware during the American Revolution. In 1831, the ferry was replaced by the Washington Crossing Bridge, which connects it with Washington Crossing, Pennsylvania.
