Princeton Local Customs

  • Hoosier Hospitality

    Most people here are friendly and helpful,but it is hard to judge the forest when you are one of the trees.If you are lost or need information you can usually go to one of the convenience stores located all over Princeton and usually they can help you out.That is often where you will find the police,also.

    by miner Updated Dec 22, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Train traffic is very heavy in Princeton.It was determined that a train goes through Princeton on an average of every 5 minutes.Sometimes they are moving pretty fast so don't try to beat them at the crossings.There have been several train/car accidents in the last few years.

    All too frequent sight

Princeton Off The Beaten Path

  • Old wooden barns

    Old wooden barns are being replaced with newer metal-sided pole barns.They are becoming fewer and fewer and I would imagine that in the near future there will be none left.Some of the older barns were built with enormous beams like log cabins were built with.

Princeton Favorites

  • Still playing on the river

    Fishing in the Patoka River usually was a futile effort,but it was getting back to nature.I would take my kids hiking down the river road and skip rocks across the river.

  • Life before computers

    As a boy we lived fairly close to the Patoka River.I spent a lot of my time roaming the woods and playing along the river .This is a photo taken from Severn's Bridge a few years ago.The bridge is now closed to traffic as it is considered a hazard to vehicles. There is a dam that made for a great swimming hole!

  • Country roads and corn fields

    Visit one of the remaining covered bridges and the countryside surrounding Princeton.Mostly off the beaten path type stuff.If you come to Princeton you are off the beaten path. This is home and where I grew up.It is a small community with a slow-paced,easy going lifestyle (ususally).After living in San Diego and fighting the traffic and high...
