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.
Permanent Exhibits include:
A Legacy for Salem County
The Alexander Grant House and Keeping Room
The John Jones Law Office
