The original settlers of Princeton were Lenni Lenape Native Americans, and in the later part of 17th century, it was the Europeans who discovered their colony. Henry Greenland was the original European to locate his home in the borders of the upcoming town. It was in 1683 when his house was built, together with a tavern. East and West Jersey representatives met to place boundaries in this drinking hole for the township’s location.

Princeton was originally known as a part of Stony Brook. It was James Leonard who initially called the town Prince-town when he illustrated his huge estate’s location in his journal. Subsequently, it bore several names, which comprise of Prince’s Town, Princetown, and lastly, Princeton, which was named after King William III despite the lack of formal documentary support. One more theory implies that the name Princeton came from Henry Prince, a land owner; however, no evidence was shown that it was indeed the case.

Princeton was a huge destination in the road throughout the most moving occurrences in its history. The borders between Middlesex County and Somerset County ran all the way through this town, along the high road between Philadelphia and New York, currently Nassau Street. Mercer County was established in the year 1838, and a part of the West Windsor Township had been added to the part of Montgomery Township that was incorporated in the new county and was made to Princeton Township. In 1853, the region between Delaware and Raritan Canal and the current borough line was included in Princeton Township. In 1894, Princeton Borough became an independent town.
