For Our Community


The Society has a vast array of historic objects, many of which are on display for visitors to see.  Our premises include two historic homes, a barn, a log cabin, and a law office, and a bath house.


Josephine Jaquett Memorial Research Library

The library contains invaluable information on Salem County's history.  The library collection consists of books and archival materials that aid researchers and genealogists in their search.


Educational Programs

The Society is honored to share the history of our community with local school children.  We offer several educational programs that are sure to make a lasting impression on students.

Although the Society is still closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic we wanted to let you know that work is still being done by our staff behind the scenes as we prepare for our eventual reopening. From day one staff has been working their normal hours from home thanks to the advancements of modern technology. In addition to this our Administrator and our Museum Collections Coordinator have been on site periodically (working separately in different buildings) on projects that have long needed attention on behalf of the Library and Museum. Our Administrative Assistant continues to work productively at home via remote access. Should you need anything please reach out to her via email at and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you and stay safe!
