Welcome to the Wicoff House

PreservingRememberingSharing History

The mission of the Wicoff House Museum is to preserve and promote the history of Plainsboro by collecting and displaying objects, documents and photographs related to it.

The Wicoff House was the home of John Van Buren Wicoff, who led the successful effort of the residents of Plainsboro to incorporate the Township in 1919.
