Welcome to Princeton!

Named after the Prince of Wales, Princeton is situated amongst the foothills of the Cascade Mountains and is often referred to as the southern gateway to the interior of British Columbia. Located 133 km (83 mi) east of Hope on the meandering highway 3, Princeton's combination of surrounding valleys and mountains make it a natural setting for a wide variety of outdoor activities, including fishing, trail riding, snowmobiling, golfing and mountain biking. Princeton was once a gold and copper mining town and visitors can often be found searching for nuggets along the bed of the Tulameen River. Attractions that further encompass Princeton's frontier history include the Princeton Museum, which offers an impressive collection of minerals, fossils and historic artifacts, and Princeton Castle, an architectural masterpiece that was built in the early 1900's to resemble a medieval castle. Downtown Princeton is home to a variety of quaint shops and cozy caf├ęs.
