Princeton University is a private, Ivy League, research college located in beautiful Princeton New Jersey. Last Thursday we spent the afternoon just roaming around this amazing and historic campus.
The university was founded in 1746 in Elizabeth N.J. as the college of New Jersey, then moved to Newark, N.J. in 1747 and then to Princeton in 1756. The university was renamed Princeton University in 1896.
The architecture of Princeton's extraordinary buildings spans four centuries and includes a variety of architectural styles.
Styles of architecture include colonial, Collegiate Gothic, Italianate, Romanesque and modern.
Below is a upshot of Nassau Hall, the oldest building on campus.
This is the front of the Princeton University Chapel.
The chapel, which is more cathedral like to me, decorated for the holidays.
The next photo is of the Firestone memorial Library.
Our day in Princeton was so enjoyable that even Michael and Grace loved the time they spent walking around the campus. Of course they were absolutely convinced they were at the Hogwarts School of Harry Potter fame!
Wishing you all a safe and wonderful new year!!!
