Catalogue Note

Nassau Hall was built in 1756 and constituted the whole College of New Jersey for the ensuing 50 years. The building served as the state capitol in 1776, and briefly as the nation's capital in 1783. The present is one of the earliest depictions of the building's restoration following a devastating fire in 1855.
