Open Archive: On the Delaware & Raritan Canal

June 12, 2019, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Since its creation in 1831, the D&R Canal has been a Princeton fixture. Stop by the Discovery Center to explore documents and other materials that reveal how this man-made body of water altered the local landscape and community.

The Historical Society of Princeton’s Open Archive series allows visitors to interact with little-seen artifacts and documents from HSP’s vast collection. Featuring a different theme each time, these events present historical material with minimal interpretation and encourage visitors to make observations, ask questions, and be the historian themselves. HSP’s curator of collections and research will be on hand to share information and answer questions.

Co-sponsored by the library and the Historical Society of Princeton.

Presented with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this programming do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
