Princeton Rail Museum

Princeton is actually a stop you can reach before you get all the way into Bluefield.  When you get off of interstate 77 at exit 9, you are in Princeton.  To get to the Railroad Museum, turn right onto Rt. 460 west (towards Bluefield) then take a right at the second light.  After less then 25 yards, take a left at the stop sign, this will put you onto Rt. 104.  Go straight through the stoplight (next to Allen’s supermarket) onto WV Rt. 20 (Thorn St). After 1.6 miles, turn right onto US Rt. 19/WV Rt. 20 and then a left to stay on US Rt. 19.  The Princeton Railroad Museum is 0.5 miles ahead.


The Railroad museum of Princeton has a lot of really neat “artifacts” from the coal mining era.  Plan to spend about an hour here, and relish the fact that you are still in a sizable city.
