Come Saturday, June 16, 2018, the heart of Mercer County will have a special celebration for the Mountain State.
With West Virginia turning 155 years old on June 20, the Princeton Railroad will be treating the public to free trolley rides and a guided tour around town. Director Patricia Smith emphasizes this is the only day out of the year where all four museums will be open.
“People are always saying, ‘Oh there’s nothing to do here.’ Believe me, there is a lot of stuff to do in Princeton,” Smith said. “We’re one of the biggest things of the year when we celebrate West Virginia’s birthday.”
The Mercer County Agricultural Museum will also be providing horse-and-wagon rides and a petting zoo. The celebration runs from noon to 4. Admission is free to the public.
