Nassau Hall , one of the largest buildings on the Princeton University campus has served many purposes throughout US's history.

During the Revolutionary War, it was a barracks and hospital occupied by British or Continental troops. The British surrendered here in the Battle of Princeton in 1776. Important political gatherings, such as the first legislature of the State of New Jersey and the Continental Congress sessions have taken place here.

Presently, the atrium contains a memorial, of names etched in marble, of Princeton's war dead. The hall is frequently used for faculty and board of trustee meetings and other gatherings.
