Open Archive: Princeton School Days

Tuesday, September 17, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

As a new school year begins, stop by the Discovery Center to explore report cards, diplomas and other archival materials from historic local schools, both public and private.

The Historical Society of Princeton’s Open Archive series allows visitors to interact with little-seen artifacts and documents from its 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.

Presented in partnership with the Historical Society of Princeton. Photo courtesy of Historical Society of Princeton.
