Princeton was on the overland route taken by a majority of the Cherokees on the Trail of Tears. The first major group of emigrating Cherokees to pass through Princeton, November 3 1837, was known as the Cannon contingent, made up of Cherokees who had agreed to remove voluntarily.

Ten of the contingents organized by the Cherokee Nation passed through Princeton in November and December of 1838.
