Princeton is a small town of close-knit people. We came together as a community at times of peril. For example, we are down by the Mississippi and we all had to come together to pack sandbags by the shore to prevent the river from rising too much that it damaged property. Overall it's a nice town with good-hearted people in it.

The small town of Princeton is a great place to grow up because of everyone in the community. Everyone looks out for each other, and anytime you have a problem someone will always be there to help.
This is the perfect little town for your little family. There is a gas station, restaurants, parks and an elementary school for all families. I attended the elementary school and loved it. Those were the best times of my life that everyone wishes they could go back to. There are new houses located closely to the school for children to bike or walk to school.
