Nassau Hall

Witherspoon Street, Princeton, NJ

Nassau Hall is the oldest building on Princeton University’s campus. Its history dates back to 1776, when the British Redcoats seized the building, forcing George Washington and his army — including Alexander Hamilton — to retaliate in the Battle of Princeton.

While the building has since been updated, many of the original furnishings and intricate detailing remain. A guided tour of Princeton University’s campus will give you an in-depth history of this famous building.
