Abstract

Description

The imposing wrought-iron gate, known as FitzRandolph Gate, is the official entrance to Princeton's campus. It was funded by a bequest from Augustus Van Wickle in honor of his great grandfather, Nathaniel FitzRandolph. The son of a 17th-century Quaker settler of Princeton, FitzRandolph was instrumental in raising the money and land required to build the college, and in 1753 he gave the original four and a half acres on which Nassau Hall was built. The gate was designed by the firm of McKim, Meade and White and erected in 1905.
