What is there to do and learn outside at Updike Farmstead?

Explore the Farmstead History Trail – six signs interpreting the lives of Lenni Lenape Native Americans, Quaker settlers, Continental soldiers, family farmers, and other residents of the Stony Brook region. The signage links buildings and physical markers in the landscape with historical photos, documents, and artifacts. 

Discover Princeton and New Jersey’s rich agricultural history in the Garden State History Garden. Direct access to the digital exhibition is available here, or download the HSP mobile app here to view it alongside other digital tours.
