Mercer County Seal

The Mercer County seal has symbols that are important to and representative of the towns and people within the county borders.

The image of the New Jersey State House represents Mercer County as the “Capital County.” The City of Trenton is the capital of the State of New Jersey as well as a city in Mercer County. New Jersey State House can be found in downtown Trenton.

The buildings surrounding the image of the state house represent Mercer County as a sought out residential area where many people work, live, and build families, as well as an attractive location for commerce and business development.

The Mercer Oak is a great symbol of the history of Mercer County, named after Hugh Mercer, a brigadier general in the Continental Army during the American Revolution. During the Battle of Princeton, Mercer was stabbed by an English soldier's bayonet. According to legend, he was unwilling to abandon his troops, and rested on the tree's trunk while they stood their ground. After the battle, Mercer was taken to the Clarke House where he died from his injuries nine days later.

This historical landmark was a large white oak tree that stood in Princeton Battlefield State Park in Princeton, New Jersey. The tree was about 300 years old when it was torn by strong winds in March 2000. It remains the emblem of Princeton and appears on the seal of the municipality as well as the Mercer County seal.
