Property Description

Inspired by the worldly and entrepreneurial spirit of the citizens of Princeton, and graced by the important legacy of the town, the Historical Society of Princeton develops signature programs of learning and discovery to connect the lessons of the past to the issues which inform our future. Using our historic site and collections, we teach local and international visitors that history is relevant in daily life, and can be used to explore a shared connection among people; to celebrate a love of place; and to promote conversations on creating a better future.

The Farmstead is listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places and lies within the Princeton Battlefield/Stony Brook Settlement Historic District. Starting January 6, 2016, the museum is open Wednesday-Sunday, Noon - 4 pm, with extended hours Thursdays until 7 pm.

Admission: $4 per person; Free for HSP members and for everyone on Thursdays from 4 to 7 pm.
