The monuments and memorials found throughout Princeton take various forms — from trees to sculptures to green ovals on buildings. Stop by the Discovery Center to explore documents and artifacts that reveal the history behind these commemorations.
The Historical Society of Princeton’s Open Archive series allows visitors to interact with little-seen artifacts and documents from its vast collection. Featuring a different theme each time, these events present historical material with minimal interpretation and encourage visitors to make observations, ask questions, and be the historian themselves. HSP’s curator of collections and research will be on hand to share information and answer questions.
