Welcome!Princeton Renaissance Project, empowered by The Blueprint Communities Program, is working to improve life in Princeton, West Virginia.
We envision by 2016, we will have an attractive, economically vibrant downtown environment that inspires a sense of pride and renewal, where community members are engaged, active, and excited.
There are a multitude of projects in process, including the restoration of the historic Lavon Theater (formally The Royal Theatre), a multi-wall mural project, a community garden and more. A series of fundraisers and special events are being held in and around the theater as we move towards renovation. Stay up to date on event announcements and the progress of The Renaissance on our facebook page and on the events calendar below. Please be a part of this exciting development!
