Historic Sites
Princeton University’s Nassau Hall, built in 1756 to house what was then the College of New Jersey, has a storied history. It was occupied by both British and American troops during the Revolutionary War and served as the U.S. capitol in 1783.
Built in the 1750s, Morven was the residence of Richard Stockton, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Two centuries and 11 families later, Brendan T. Byrne was the last governor to call the Princeton mansion home. Guided and self-guided tours of the house and garden are available. 17
