Princeton Junction, NJ is a small unincorporated community within the affluent West Windsor Township. Their name comes from hosting the Amtrak and New Jersey Transit rail stations. The history of the area dates back to 1634 when an English captain, Thomas Yong, began trade with the Lenni Lenape tribe that inhabited Princeton Junction. In 1682 the Lenape tribe sold vast portions to the Europeans under the William Penn treaties.
During the late 20th century the area experienced a housing boom. What had been a primarily agricultural place, was now undergoing dramatic changes. In 1999, The New York Times wrote that this Township has grown “into a sprawl of expensive houses in carefully groomed developments, and home to nearly 20,000 people,” over the past thirty years. Hutchinson has provided many local contractors and HVAC services to the residents of Princeton Junction and West Windsor Township.
Princeton Junction’s pop culture claim to fame is thanks to Orson Welles. Welles produced a radio drama based on H.G. Wells book, War of the Worlds. This Welles drama informed his audience that alien spacecraft had landed in Grover’s Mill, located in West Windsor. The broadcast was so convincing, many listening believed they were listening to a real news report and became hysterical. There is now a monument near Grover’s Mill Pond at Van Nest Park to commemorate the broadcast.
