DescriptionIn the early 20th century, visitors from around the world flocked to the Walker-Gordon Dairy Farm, where a rotary machine milked 50 cows in 12 minutes. Borden Milk's original mascot Elsie, a Jersey cow intriguingly named “You'll Do Lobelia,” is buried at the farm on Plainsboro Road.

In 1982, road construction unearthed an archeological site at Plainsboro estimated to be up to 3,700 years old. Some 25,000 artifacts have been excavated, including the remains of structures indicating a permanent settlement.
