Princeton is an Amtrak intercity train station at 107 Bicentennial Drive in Princeton, Illinois. The station was built in 1911 by the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad and is listed as "Princeton City" on the Amtrak website and the List of Amtrak stations. Amtrak, the Illinois Department of Transportation and the city worked together to renovate the depot in 1998. Over the following six years, a new roof and gutters were installed, brickwork was repaired and the restrooms were upgraded.
The station is adjacent to Darius Miller Park, which was named in honor of Darius Miller, president of the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad (CB&Q) from 1910 to 1914; officials from the CB&Q donated the land for the park following Miller's death.
