Prospect House, known also as just Prospect, in Princeton, Mercer County, New Jersey, United States, is a fine example of the work of architect John Notman who helped popularize Italianate architecture in America.
In 1878, it was given to the College of New Jersey, which became Princeton University and served as the house of the school president. Woodrow Wilson lived here before he became governor of New Jersey and then President of the United States.
In 1968, it became a university clubhouse.
