The Salem County Historical Society has been collecting objects related to the history of our community since our founding in 1884. The result is a rich collection in terms of both depth and variety. In total, the museum collection of the Salem County Historical Society numbers over 10,000 objects.
Our museum collections and exhibits span our premises. Our main building, comprised of two historic homes - the Alexander Grant House c.1721 and the Rumsey House - house several permanent and changing exhibit spaces, as well as period rooms. In the Society's courtyard are our barn, which houses our larger objects such as vehicles and machinery, a log cabin, a law office, and a bath house.
We invite you to visit our museum Tuesday - Saturday noon-4:00pm. Admission is $5.00 for non-members and free for members.
