Historical Organization of the Week: Green Brook 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 Green Brook Historical Society. The Green Brook Historical Society seeks to preserve the history, architecture, and heritage of Green Brook Township for future generations. The society gathers historical documents, photographs, and artifacts; preserves, records, and archives historical records; and educates residents about the rich history of the township through publications, displays, and other forms of communication. The society encourages participation in this effort from educational institutions, community groups, and other interested individuals.

The Society has been working with Green Brook Township to preserve and restore a number of properties, including the Vermeule-Munday Home, Vail-Trust House, and Washington Rock. They are also working on a history trail project, which when completed will connect a number of historic sites in the Township.

The Green Brook Historical Society relies on memberships, fundraising, and countless volunteers to continue its mission. For more information on programs, special events, and exhibits hosted by the Green Brook Historical Society or to become a member or volunteer, please visit www.greenbrooknj.com or call 732-627-0797.
