Princeton Theological Seminary began in 1812. Although located near Princeton University, it has no connection. The seminary fostered the highly conservative Princeton Theology of Archibald Alexander and Charles Hodge.

In the 1920s Liberal Christians forced out the Conservative Christians who still promoted the old Princeton Theology. Thus, in 1929 J. Gresham Machen left Princeton Theological Seminary and helped found Orthodox Presbyterian Church and Westminster Theological Seminary.
