Embracing the Past, Engaging the Future!

Princeton Renaissance Project is working to improve life in downtown Princeton, West Virginia.

We envision an attractive, economically vibrant downtown environment that inspires a sense of pride and renewal, where community members are engaged, active, and excited. We are on track with that mission. 

Projects include the restoration of the historic Lavon Theater (formerly The Royal Theatre), public art, a community garden, restoration of historic advertisements, beautification efforts and exciting special events. Stay up to date on event announcements on our events page, and follow our progress on our blog page.

There is an enthusiastic and thriving scene of creative entrepreneurs, a strong community spirit and a renewed sense of hope for a bright and prosperous renaissance on Mercer Street. Please be a part of this exciting development!
