Salem County Historical Society
An Invitation to Visit...

The objective of the Society is to discover, procure and preserve whatever may relate to the natural, civil, literary and ecclesiastical history of Salem County and perpetuate the historical heritage for present and future generations.

Since its founding in 1884, the Salem County Historical Society has been the beneficiary of the interest and generosity of residents of the county and of those whose family roots are here. This has included the acquisition of all of its buildings, the collections that make up the museum, the library facility, and most of the cost of restorations and renovations that have taken place over the years, not to mention the vast contributions of volunteer time put in by its members. The result has been an historical museum that many believe to be unique and without equal in the United States and a library that draws genealogical researchers from all areas of the country.
