Garden State History Garden

In this exhibition, crops in each bed of the Sipprelle Unity Garden at Updike Farmstead illuminate a local agricultural history story. Use the HSP mobile app to access multimedia interpretation of Princeton and New Jersey’s rural past, a story of innovation, production and consumption, labor, and land. Photographs and documents from HSP’s collection tell stories ranging from the Women’s Land Army of America during World War I to Princeton’s Poor Farm in the late nineteenth century.
