Photographer's Note

Albert Einstein's residential building in Princeton, New Jersey 19351955

From 1935 until his death, this was the home of Albert Einstein (1879-1955), German-born theoretical physicist and Nobel Prize winner (1921).

Princeton, New Jersey is the name of a town in Mercer County, New Jersey, United States. Princeton prides itself as one of the nation's most historic communities, as well as home to the renowned Princeton University.

In 1933, Albert Einstein arrived at Princeton, where he was affiliated with the Institute for Advanced Study. In August 1935 Einstein bought this single family house in Princeton, near the institute, in which he lived with his wife Elsa, his stepdaughter Margot and his secretary Helen Dukas.

Albert Einstein's house, 112 Mercer Street, a white frame two-story house with large front porch is a private residence now. The house was moved from its original location on Alexander Street and it was never turned into a museum on Einstein's request.

There is a small wrought-iron gate at the head of the front walk with a little message on it: "Private Residence." The house is not open to visitors, and is owned by a member of the Institute's Faculty.

Imagination is more important than knowledge.
--Albert Einstein
