History:  

PRINCETON, a city with Sherburne County and the county seat of Mille Lacs County until 1920 when Milaca was named, received its first permanent settlers in 1854 and was named in honor of John S. Prince of St. Paul, who with others platted this village in the fall or winter of 1855, the plat being recorded April 19, 1856. He was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, May 7, 1821; came to St. Paul in 1854 as agent of the Chouteau Fur Company; afterward engaged in insurance, real estate, and banking; was a member of the constitutional convention of Minnesota, 1857; mayor of St. Paul, 1860-62 and 1865-66; was president of the Savings Bank of St. Paul for many years; and died in that city September 4, 1895. Princeton Township was organized in 1857, and the village separated from the township and was incorporated March 3, 1877. Major industries were brickmaking and a potato starch factory; the village had a station of the Great Northern Railway in section 33, and its post office began in 1861.
