Proprietary House

Description

The Proprietary House served as the royal governor's home from 1764 through 1776. It was constructed by architect John Edward Pryor and first served as the home to Royal Governor Chief Justice Smyth. It was also the home of the last royal governor, William Franklin, who was arrested by the Committee of Safety, put on trial in Princeton, and transported to a prison in Connecticut.

It is the only colonial governor house still standing today.
