Open Archive: Trolleys, Trains, and Transit

April 17, 2018, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Event Navigation

Princeton has always drawn its significance as a town from its centrality between major metropolises and the transportation that brings residents there. The Historical Society of Princeton will display artifacts and documents from its collection that illustrate how integral transit has always been to Princeton life.

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 (no labels or glass boxes here!) and encourage visitors to make observations, ask questions, and be the historian themselves. Stephanie Schwartz, HSP’s Curator of Collections and Research, will be on hand to share information and answer any questions. Discovery Center

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