9. Charcoal Inn

This building located at 184 John Street was a popular club for the colored men. In fact, they were called the “Nemderloc" -- colored men spelled backwards! This club started in the 1930’s and was owned by William Teague and William Green.

In 1947, an unfortunate incident happened when a disagreement caused among patrons took place. Princeton’s second Negro Policeman, Walter Harris, was called on duty, and as a result of his intervention, he was shot. Patrolman Harris is memorialized at Monument Hall located on Stockton Street.
