Homestead Princeton announced the company’s new home at 300 Witherspoon St. in Princeton, the former site of the Princeton Packet newspaper production.

Home furnishings and design destination, Homestead Princeton, announced the company’s new home at 300 Witherspoon St. in Princeton.

Homestead Princeton will hold its grand re-opening from 1-4 p.m. Sept. 20 with giveaways, raffles and participation from local businesses.

“We’re excited to open the doors in our new location and feel it celebrates our aesthetic, our vision and the customers we serve. I am delighted to take this opportunity to announce Homestead Princeton’s new gift and design studio,” Homestead Princeton co-owner Ron Menapace said in a prepared statement.

“The move to 300 Witherspoon St. is the natural evolution for our brand,” Homestead Princeton co-owner Kristin Menapace said in the statement. “Homestead Princeton has earned a reputation for a beautiful, yet affordable, design aesthetic and superior customer service. At Homestead Princeton, we plan to build on these distinctions as we look towards our future”

Homestead Princeton’s new store is located in the former Princeton Packet newspaper building. The building has been rehabbed and reimagined to reflect Homestead Princeton’s design-forward aesthetic, according to the statement.

The Princeton Packet traces its lineage to 1786 and is New Jersey’s oldest weekly newspaper.

“Repurposing this building celebrates Homestead Princeton’s legacy of salvaging lumber from historic structures to make our signature barnwood furniture”, Kristin Menapace said in the statement. “As Princetonians, we are proud to revive this storied building and we’re elated to call in our new home”.

Since 2012, Homestead Princeton has celebrated the legacy of old barns, preserving their legacy to give the precious natural resource – barnwood – a second life. Due, in part, to their socially responsible and sustainable practices, Homestead Princeton is the only furniture store in New Jersey recognized as a “Sustainable Business” by the New Jersey Sustainable Business Initiative. Homestead Princeton is owned and operated by Princeton residents Kristin and Ron Menapace. Visit for more information.
