The Faculty Room of Nassau
Hall is laden with Princeton tradition. Modeled after the British House of
Commons, it has served as the meeting place for both the New Jersey State
Legislature and the Continental Congress. It is now used for meetings of
the University trustees and other academic officials. The walls are lined
with portraits of important figures from Princeton's history, including
"Washington at the Battle of Princeton" by Charles Willson Peale.
Outside the Faculty Room is
the Memorial Atrium of Nassau Hall, which lists the names and class years
of Princetonians who died in the wars of the United States, from the
Revolutionary War through Vietnam.
