During the 1938 War of the Worlds broadcast Grovers Mill and Princeton played a big part in this adapted version of the classic. THE OBSERVATORY AT PRINCETON was refered to as the place Professor Pierson who was portrayed by the 23-year-old Orson Welles worked. He was bringing the listeners to the CBS Radio Network a Halloween treat, a dramatization of H.G. Wells' 40-year-old novel, The War of the Worlds. The real observatory in use in 1938 was the FitzRadolph observatory on Princeton's campus.
