Historical Organization of the Week: Twin Lights Historical Society


Every Monday, I highlight a non-profit related to history or the arts, a historical society, preservation group or friends group whose main objective is to promote the historical and artistic history of New Jersey. 

This week, I am featuring the Twin Lights Historical Society. The Twin Lights Historical Society is dedicated to preserving New Jersey's foremost lighthouse and museum, which as of 2006 is now National Historic Landmark. The mission of the society is to engage the public and foster a broader understanding of the historical role played by the Twin Lights in maritime navigation and wireless communication.

The Twin Lights Historical Society is supported by a staff of nineteen Trustees and sixteen visitor services/education volunteers. Additionally, volunteers are recruited from the local community to assist with special programs and projects. Last year volunteers contributed over 9,000 hours assisting with research and interpretation, maintenance, special programs, education programs, clerical, event planning, site development, collections management, web site development, grounds maintenance, in the museum shop and on a DVD research and planning team.
