    Who would have ever thought? Remember, Elsie the Cow. The Borden Milk Cow. I believe a cow image is still on packages of Borden Cheese today.

    Elsie lived on a Farm in Plainsboro. On April 16, 1941, she was traveling by truck and was involved in an accident. In the accident, Elsie suffered neck and spine injuries and could not be saved. She was put to sleep and buried on the farm.

    Her grave is off of Plainsboro Road in what is now the Walker-Gordon Farms Housing Development. A headstone has been erected in her memory.

    One of the many parks in Plainsboro. The Mill Pond Park is very scenic with a lake. The Mill Pond Park has a nice 2 mile trail that cuts through it and weaves behind some developments and wooded areas.

    Barleys Pub is a great little place to go on a week night. There are usually happy hour appetizers, especially on Friday nights. If you are in the mood for game of pool or darts, of just want to sit back and watch the game hang out for a while.

    Romeos is a restaurant and a pizza place. In fact, there are separate entrances depnding on what you are there for. The pizza on the casual side is one of my favorite pizzas. The food served in the restaurant is also very good.

    Lotus Garden has been in Plainsboro for probably about 18 years now and it is still owned and run by the same people. The food is great and you if you love hot and sour soup, you won't be disappointed.

    Favorite Dish: Hot and Sour Soup and A20 (Chicken and Vegetables) with Hot Garlic Sauce

    Residents of Plainsboro can lease a piece of land at the Plainsboro Public Gardens to culitvate and grow fruits, vegetables, flowers etc. My boss leased a piece of land while he lived in Plainsboro and everyone at work benefited from his bounty of luscious, red jersey tomatoes.
