Princessville is an unincorporated community located within Lawrence Township in Mercer County, New Jersey, United States.[2] It was home to the Colonial era Princessville Inn, formerly listed on the National Register of Historic Places, which burned down in 1982. A cemetery still exists on Princeton Pike that dates to 1843 when the inn donated land for a Methodist Episcopal congregation. The church relocated in 1890 and was replaced by one built by local African-American families, which was destroyed by a Hurricane in 1950. The Baker-Brearley House, a National Register of Historic Places listed home that houses the Lawrence Historical Society, is located down a driveway past the cemetery.[3] The area immediately to the south is occupied by a corporate office park adjacent to the interchange between Princeton Pike and I-95. The area to the north is largely rural.
