Events for Sunday April 8, 2018

Building Princeton, Historical Society of Princeton

Sunday April 8, 2018
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

The Historical Society of Princeton (HSP) is excited to host a brand-new family program designed to increase awareness of the town’s rich architectural heritage. Building Princeton will be held on Sunday, April 8 in the Wojciechowicz Barn at HSP’s Updike Farmstead. Using 70,000 LEGO building blocks, fifty teams will each receive a photograph and story of a historic building, which they will build within the 2-hour program. When the models are finished, they will be placed on a 30-foot map of Princeton, providing an amazing aerial view of the town.

This program, with adults and children working together, is ideal for children ages 8-12, but all ages are encouraged to participate. Led by Architect Stephen W. Schwartz AIA, of Building Blocks Workshops, Princeton will join other cities that have participated in this program, including Montclair, Morristown, and Summit. At the conclusion of the program each family will receive a copy of “The Princeton Architectural Treasure Hunt Map” and are encouraged to go out as a family and find the real buildings. This event is made possible by generous community sponsors JaZams, McCaffrey’s Supermarkets, Open Aire Affairs, Pinneo Construction, and Architect Marina Rubina. Tickets are $35 per team (up to four people with at least 1 adult). Pre-registration is encouraged, as space is limited. Registration is available online at www.princetonhistory.org.
