Building Princeton

The 4th annual family event was held in the Wojciechowicz Barn at Updike Farmstead on Sunday, April 24, 2022. Teams had two hours (and about 70,000 available LEGO bricks) to complete LEGO versions of historic Princeton structures. 

Special thanks to sponsors Adams Rental, jaZams, McCaffrey’s, and Studio Hillier.

Building Princeton is recommended for 8-12 year-olds, but all ages are encouraged to participate. 

 

The MAGIC and HISTORY of Marquand Park

In 1953, the Marquand family donated 17 acres of their estate, Guernsey Hall, to the municipality of Princeton to serve as an arboretum and passive recreation park.  Once part of a 30-acre farm owned by Judge Richard Stockton Field, Marquand Park is home to more that 140 difference tree specimens, some dating back over 170 years!

Check back for the fall 2022 date.
