"Green Oval" Digital Tour Presentation

Ever wonder what the green ovals on selected buildings in Princeton mean? These plaques, installed as part of the Historical Society of Princeton’s celebration of the Bicentennial in 1976, signify some of Princeton’s oldest remaining buildings.

This August, HSP will introduce a digital tour of all remaining “green oval buildings” on its mobile app. The tour has been researched and designed by Princeton University history student and HSP’s Derian/ProCES Summer Intern, Abbie Minard. The work began in a Fall 2018 Princeton University archaeology course.

On Thursday, August 8, at 7:00 PM, Abbie will give a talk at the Historical Society’s Updike Farmstead museum. Her presentation will explore the “green oval buildings” and offer a snapshot of 18th-century life in Princeton, including stories of Loyalists and Revolutionary War soldiers, tradespeople, Continental Congressmen, early farmers, and Princeton’s enslaved residents, among many others. 

Free; light refreshments will be served. Registration is requested at www.princetonhistory.org.
