These films depict different time periods associated with the colonnade at Princeton Battlefield State Park in Princeton, NJ. The first honors those who fought and fell at the Battle of Princeton (January 3, 1777) during the American Revolutionary War, where the colonnade now stands; the second depicts the role of the architect (Thomas Ustick Walter) as a deity of sorts, birthing from his mind the 1835 plans for the colonnade's original Philadelphia mansion; the third pays homage to the colonnade’s journey from Philadelphia, PA, to Princeton, NJ, up the Delaware & Raritan Canal on canal boats in 1901; the fourth reminds visitors of the colonnade’s original purpose as an entryway to a private home—with specific inspiration from a Maxwell family Christmas card dated 1949; and the fifth shows the colonnade in its present state, viewed through the imagined lens of Walter revisiting his work today in 2021.

 

These films are now available to the public by using the free YouTube app on their mobile devices while walking the grounds of the colonnade. The following 2-minute promo shows visitors engaging with the works:
