Currently the center of Princeton University’s administrative offices, Nassau Hall plays an important role in national history. Other than featuring student and faculty residence, a library, classrooms, and a chapel, it also housed American and British soldiers during the American Revolutionary War.
Architecture aficionados marvel as the mixed styles of three architects, Robert Smith, Benjamin Latrobe, and John Notman, are made visible from the towers to the floors and exterior walls. Designated as a National Historic Landmark by the U.S. Department of the Interior in 1960, visitors can meander through halls that once welcomed the New Jersey Legislature, the Congress of the Confederation, and the first United States President, George Washington.
