Birdhouses for the Birdhouse Auction, an event hosted by Princeton Community Housing, invited architects, artists and other creatives to fashion their own vision of the common birdhouse.

Princeton Community Housing celebrated it's 40th anniversary in 2007 with a Birdhouse Auction entitled, "There's No Place Like Home," on September 30, 2007. For over forty years, PCH has been advocating for affordable housing in Princeton and currently owns and manages 463 rental apartments for families and seniors.

Over 400 people attended the festivities on the grounds of Educational Testing Service. 124 birdhouses that were built or decorated by architects, artists and other creative people were auctioned. The event was successful financially and socially and brought together a diverse group of community supporters of affordable housing.
