Overview
Nestled at the foot of Wachusett Mountain, Princeton has come a long way since the days when cows outnumbered its citizens. Today, within its small circumference, the town boasts four nationally registered historical districts. With an array of styles from Colonial to Greek Revival, Richardsonian to Romanesque, its distinguished architectural landscape serves as a lasting reminder of the town's many transitions. Anderson, Dubman and Fiandaca document Princeton's growth from eighteenth-century agrarian community to turn-of-the-century summer resort.
