Princeton University

Founded in 1756, Princeton University is one of America's oldest and most prestigious postsecondary educational institutions. Because its early history came before the Revolution, Princeton's first students are unlikely to recognize much of what makes this school so great today, but tradition is nonetheless important here, with many families sending generation after generation to the school. Some of the country's most influential and successful people have attended Princeton, and both the school and the city are featured in many movies and books, including F. Scott Fitzgerald's "This Side of Paradise". The university is also a major employer in the town of Princeton.

The Revolutionary War

On January 3, 1777, British and American troops met in battle in that became known as the Battle of Princeton. After having successfully thwarted the British just a day before, General George Washington took his troops to Princeton to launch a surprise attack on the British troops there. After a relatively short battle, the British fled, leaving the Americans to loot the supplies abandoned in Princeton by the British. Today, the site of the battle is preserved and memorialized as Princeton Battlefield State Park, a 200-acre facility with historic markers and other educational information.

Lake Carnegie

Named for famous American philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, who donated the money that built this man-made lake, Lake Carnegie is owned by Princeton University and is used as a practice facility for its crew team. However, the lake is open to the public for a variety of recreational activities, making it a good outdoor resource for the entire Princeton community, including those who do not attend or work at the school. The lake is stocked with several varieties of sea life, making it a good fishing destination that can also be used for ice skating when the winter months are cold enough to allow for safe usage.
