1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

On October 6, the Historical Society of Princeton (HSP) presents HistoryFest, a free annual event exploring local history. A variety of interactive activities for all ages will be offered on the Society’s six-acre historic site, Updike Farmstead, at 354 Quaker Road.

Visitors will travel through four centuries of Princeton history, with hands-on activities and presentations showing the town’s changes over time. Artifacts and documents from HSP’s vast collection will inspire stations focusing on topics such as the Revolutionary War, house moving, and Princeton’s first inhabitants, the Lenni-Lenape. Children will receive a “Time Travel Passport” to be stamped at each station.

Families can drop in anytime between 1:00 and 3:00 to enjoy these activities, which will include, among others, a colonial herb scavenger hunt and mini archeology dig. A slide-show presentation featuring vivid images from HSP’s photograph collection, Princeton: Then and Now, will be offered at 3:00 PM.
