Historical Society of Princeton's Building Princeton

  • Updike Farmstead 354 Quaker Road Princeton, NJ, 08540 United States (map)

Building Princeton (using 70,000 LEGO building blocks) is designed to increase awareness of the town’s rich architectural heritage. This family program, with adults and children working together, is ideal for children ages 8-12, but all ages are encouraged to participate.   

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.

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.
