Princeton and District Museum

This is our museum too. In fact the new Operations Manger is Coalmont’s own Sharon Anderson.

The Princeton Museum was established in 1958. It was known as the Princeton Pioneer Museum before being renamed the Princeton and District Museum and Archives.

Archival holdings include records of individuals and local organizations, mining reports, maps and photographs relating to Princeton and area including Tulameen, Coalmont, Granite Creek and Manning Park. Holdings also include an extensive biography file and newspapers. Inclusive Dates: ca. 1900 to present. Museum collection includes an extensive collection of fossil wood and rocks.

The Princeton & District Museum and Archives is currently in the process of renovating the existing building to expand into a portion of the building formerly occupied by the Town of Princeton Library. The executive and membership are excited about the challenging months ahead and the prospect of serving the public even better. The renovations will offer additional display area and an overall facelift to the museum. A grand reopening is planned for this summer.

New members are always welcome. Membership is $10.00 per year. If you have any questions, would like to join, or wish to donate to the museum, contact Sharon Anderson at 250-295-7588 or by email at princetonmuseum@telus.net. You can visit their web site here. §
