Princeton is the county seat of Mercer County in north central Missouri with a population of approximately 1,100. Princeton is located in the rolling hills of Northern Missouri bordering Iowa, and the area is a destination spot for hunters. Many of the Outdoor Channel professional hunters film in the area with many Boone and Crockett bucks taken annually. The cost of land and housing are very affordable making this area an attractive investment. Employment is made up of farming, small businesses, and public sector jobs. The largest employer, Smithfield Foods, is a large hog production facility.
The community was the childhood home of Calamity Jane, known historically for her romance with Wild Bill Hickock and as a member of Buffalo Bill Cody’s Wild West Show. Princeton holds an annual Calamity Jane Days that includes a parade, fun activities, horse-back riding, and more!
