Here is a history page for Princeton.

A small shanty was built here in 1849 becoming the first of many homes to be build in Princeton. It was built near what is now 1st Street and 4th Avenue. The first permanent white settler is said to be A. B. Damon.

The town was named for John S. Prince. He was the builder of a St. Paul sawmill in the early 1850's. Most of the lumber which went through his mill came from the Princeton area. Princeton was not platted until 1855. When Mille Lacs County was established in 1860, Princeton was named the county seat. It remained the seat until 1920.
