 A Word From Our Members
Welcome to the Princeton Mercer Regional Lifestyle!
 Formed in 1838, our region in central New Jersey was named for Continental Army General
Hugh Mercer, who lost his life during the historic Battle of Princeton in 1777.
We are located between New York City and Philadelphia, offering culture and convenience. Our earliest residents were signers of the Declaration of Independence; our modern residents are Nobel Prize winners. We are scholars and artists, entrepreneurs and financiers; we come together from all corners of the world to enjoy the privilege of calling this region home.
Our streets are lined with locally owned shops and boutiques co-existing with larger brand names. Our walkable towns retain their historic significance, with housing options from old to new. In town, studios for the first-time buyer or weekend homes, condominiums and townhouses offer a carefree lifestyle.
Steps away, you will find single-family homes on smaller lots and just a little further out are farms for agriculture, for animals and for vineyards.
Throughout the year, farmers and wineries sell locally at farm markets spread throughout the area. Many of our local stores and restaurants sell and serve food grown within a few miles of their front doors.
Our educational opportunities have something for everyone. School-age children will benefit from top-level schools continuously named as
the best of the best in New Jersey. Students from Mercer County are consistent winners in state and national competitions in academics as well as extracurriculars. Undergraduate and graduate program options abound on the campuses of Princeton University, Rider University or The College of New Jersey. Mercer County Community College offers 75 associate degree programs, along with numerous credit and noncredit certificate programs. Thomas Edison State University provides distinctive undergraduate and graduate education for self-directed adults.
Down time can be spent in museums, theaters and ballparks or on acres and acres of trails. The Princeton University Art Museum and the New Jersey State Museum house collections unrivaled anywhere else in the world, Our Emmy Award-winning McCarter Theatre hosts over 200 performances a year. Are you a team player, bicycle enthusiast or long-distance runner? We’ve got that covered too; national rowing teams train, and compete, on our lakes.
Remembering and respecting our history, living in our present and planning for our future, there is no place better to create a home than the Princeton Mercer region. Join us, and call our home yours.
