Downtown Princeton, centered around Nassau Street and Palmer Square, has many interesting buildings, shops and coffee places. Bainbridge House is a building from before the Revolutionary War located at 158 Nassau Street, adjacent to the Garden Theater. It is now a small museum, run by the Princeton Historical Society. Tours of historical Princeton depart from Bainbridge House at 2:00 PM on Sunday. The tours last two hours, but you are free to leave anytime you please.
