The first settlers built houses and a tavern on the land but it was not until the early 18th Century that the township was expanded beyond this and the local population grew. Princeton University was founded in 1746 in Elizabeth, and with a move to Newark in 1747, the university then moved to its current site seven years later and took the same name as the town in 1896.
