Princeton Academy students set up “shoppe” at the Colonial Fair Dec. 11.
Nineteen students, or tradesmen, participated in the fair, which was open to their classmates, parents and teachers.
After a month of preparation, the students brought their social study lessons to life when they transformed the school’s library into a thriving colonial village dubbed “Zamoranosburg.”
The village was full of bakers, blacksmiths, cutlers, apothecaries, printers, gunsmiths, tanners and other tradesfolk who were eager to explain how they make a living.
Right outside Zamoranosburg was the Eye of the Hawk Tavern, or the former Princeton Academy foyer. Attendees danced and dined on colonial inspired grub such as gingerbread, flapjacks and cider.
