Open Archive: Trolleys, Trains and Transit

April 17 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Princeton has always drawn its significance as a town from its centrality between major metropolises and the transportation that brings residents there. Stop by the Discovery Center to explore broadsides, timetables, and other original materials that illustrate how integral transit was and is to Princeton life and identity, from the expected to the unexpected.

The Historical Society of Princeton’s Open Archive series allows visitors to interact with little-seen artifacts and documents from HSP’s vast collection. Featuring a different theme each time, these events present historical material with minimal interpretation (no labels or glass boxes here!) and encourage visitors to make observations, ask questions, and be the historian themselves. HSP’s Curator of Collections and Research will be on hand to share information and answer any questions.
