This is part of my series of architectural photos from the campus of Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey USA. This is another of the very large buildings on the Princeton campus. There was no way to get a photo of the entire building and I also did not want to lose the architectural detail of the front of the building as well as getting a view of part of the right wing of the building. This photo was taken at 8/23/11 at 5 PM as the sun was getting lower in the sky. I liked the say the sun hit the front of the building. I tried researching the Hall, but I could not find any information on it based on the inscription that can be seen on the front of the building. The writing is legible on the photo, but I could not find any reference to the name that I read. When the photo is resized for FAR, the ppi resolution has to be adjusted and I can not read the name.

Princeton University was originally call the College of New Jersey when it was established in a nearby community 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 of America. It was relocated to Nassau Hall, which still stands and is being used even now, in Princeton in 1756. Nassau Hall was the scene of meetings of the Continental Congress (which preceded our current Congressional system) in the Spring and Fall of 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. The main campus consists of 180 buildings on 500 acres. In the Spring of 2010, the total faculty was 1,132. The total student body for the 2009-2010 school year was 7,494. The American Revolutionary War is commonly considered to have started in 1776. The American Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4, 1776, and the date is currently celebrated as the United States 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, The Treaty of Paris, was signed on September 3, 1883, in Paris, France.
