Located within West Windsor Township and Mercer County, Princeton Junction is an unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP). As of 2010, the total population of the CDP is just under 2,500.
Princeton Junction was developed in the late 1860s as a result of the relocation of the Camden & Amboy rail line from its previous location near the Delaware and Raritan Canal to its current location in the Northeast Corridor. The construction of the train station south of the intersection of Washington Road and the new rail line created the need for a nearby settlement, and Princeton Junction was formed. The community was originally comprised of several farmhouses, a general store, a feed mill, a hotel, and other businesses located on Station Drive & Washington Rd, which profited off commuters who rode the rail line.
One of West Windsor’s first planned development projects was the construction of the neighborhood of Berrien City near Scott Avenue, Alexander Road, and Berrien Avenue. Berrien City was initially constructed as an upper-middle-class development after World War 1 and featured homes over a hundred years old. While many of its residents have since left the area, many homes still remain. Today, West Windsor Arts Center operates its facilities out of the former Princeton Junction Fire Company fire station. After the Washington Road railroad bridge reconstruction was completed in 1939, the business center of Princeton Junction shifted to this new intersection of Washington Road and Cranbury Road. This intersection was predominately made up of lumber yards, service stations, liquor stores, gas stations, and a strip mall. After World War II, Princeton Junction’s population grew after the development of Sherbrooke Estates, Windsor Chase, and Wellington Estates, all prominent residential developments. Today, Princeton Junction is a candidate for the site of a Transit Village built on the northwest side of the local train station.
