The history of begins like much of the region with the Lenni Lenape Native Americans inhabiting the area. In 1683, Englishman Henry Greenland, settled here building a home and a tavern that are believed to be the first within city limits. Greenland’s home and tavern became known as “the house of accommodations” because it was not only a home, but a gathering for local officials. After six Quaker families purchased over a thousand acres, Princeton began to grow.
In January of 1777, this agricultural community would be rocked by the Revolutionary War. General George Washington led the Continental Army to defeat British troops in The Battle of Princeton. American historians have considered this and the Battle of Trenton to be pivotal, as these victories allowed American forces to gain control of most of NJ.
Princeton University, founded in 1764, is not only the fourth oldest school in the nation, but also one of the most elite. The campus sits on approximately five hundred acres and is considered to be one of America’s most beautiful campuses.
