This is part of my series of photos of the architecture on the older portion of the Princeton University Campus, Princeton, New Jersey, USA. Princeton University was originally call the College of New Jersey when it was established in another location nearby in 1746 and kept that name for 150 years. It was the 4th British established institution of higher learning in the Colonies that later became the United States. It was relocated to Nassau Hall, which still stands and is in use, in Princeton in 1756. Nassau Hall was the scene of meetings of the Continental Congress in the Spring and Fall in 1783. Princeton University is one of the eight universities that are known as the Ivy League schools, seven of which were chartered before the American Revolutionary War. Ivy League schools are considered some of the most elite universities in the United States. A number of battles of the American Revolutionary War were fought in and around Princeton. The American Revolutionary War which is commonly considered to start in 1776. The declaration of Independence was signed on July 4, 1776, the American Independence day. General George Washington was victorious at the Battle of Princeton on January 3, 1777. Numerous other battles were fought in the area of Princeton. The Final Peace Treaty between the British and the United States of America was signed on September 3, 1883, The Treaty of Paris, signed in Paris, France. This photo was taken on a different day than the previous two shots. I will be posting additional shots from both days. This photo was taken at 5:50 pm as the sun was starting to go down. Unlike the previous two photos, this was taken on a sunny day so there will be shadows and sunlight and a blue sky. I do not know the name or the use of this building, but I loved the architecture and the colors and textures of this building.
