Updike Farmstead Tours in Princeton
Here are more fun activities in Princeton, New Jersey.
- As of February 10, 2022, these are the details that have been released about this event.
Updike Farmstead Tours
After an extended shutdown due to the pandemic and road closure, the Historical Society of Princeton (HSP) is thrilled to announce the reopening of its museum at Updike Farmstead. At this time, masks are required of all guests, regardless of vaccination status.
Exhibitions inside the museum include the Einstein Salon and Innovators Gallery, which paints a fascinating and comprehensive picture of Albert Einstein’s years in Princeton, including up-close encounters with furniture from his home. Princeton’s Portrait showcases vintage photographs of Princeton’s farming history. Works by painter/educator Rex Goreleigh, the A-Team Artists of Trenton, and the Princeton Photography Club are also on view.
Outdoors, visitors can explore the Farmstead History Trail, which tells the stories of the Native Americans, Quakers, and family farmers that inhabited the area, and the Garden State History Garden, a multimedia interpretation of New Jersey’s agricultural past.
Updike Farmstead was once part of a 1200-acre parcel purchased by Benjamin Clarke in 1696 to create the Quaker settlement at Stony Brook. Listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places, the property is along the route followed by Continental troops on their way to engage British soldiers at the neighboring Thomas Clarke farm on January 3, 1777, in what would become the Battle of Princeton.
