I came here with my daughter and we were both amazed at some of the people buried in this cemetery. You need to get the map so you can find particular gravestones.

There are a hilarious number of locked entryways; we literally thought the cemetery was closed like everything else in Princeton on Mondays. There's a driveway to the far right if you're facing the front that you can walk all the way down for entry.

Burr's here, though a little hard to find, even with a map! Many other famous folk.

.........well, at least, the ones that are old and "historic." This cemetery dates from 1757, so, of course, there's going to be some historic headstones and gravesites. And, if it's Princeton University history that you're interested in, there are 12 former University Presidents buried here.

There is a small parking lot. The one "must" is to pick up their excellent brochure that: (1) lists the "famous" people buried here and (2) has a map that'll help you to find any gravesite that you want to visit.

I think we spent about 45 minutes meandering around the cemetery. We certainly could have spent a bit more time to cover it all.

Wife and I wanted to visit a few sites within walking distance from the center of Princeton. The cemetery has a few parking spaces available in the cemetery but we had chose to park in the nearby Spring Street Parking facility. The cemtary was a short wlak from the garage; which is only three blocks from the center of the town of Princeton.
Cemetery had maps at the entrance which informed visitors of who was buried here and where. The cemetery is marked in an alpha numeric grig which is detailed by stone blocks throughout the cemetery. Your visit can be quick; 30 minutes or extended if you are more inquisitive to explore throughout the cemtery
