Organization of the Week: The Madison 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 Madison Historical Society. Founded in 1922, the Madison Historical Society is a non-profit organization which works to educate the citizens of Madison about the historic value of the community and encourage its preservation, to collect and maintain an archive and make it available for public use, and to record historically relevant Madison public events. The organization was founded in order to save one of the most historic structures in Madison, the Bottle Hill Tavern, that stood on the corner of Main St. and Waverly Place. The building was successfully moved and housed the Society until the late 1940s, when they moved to the Madison Public Library.

The Madison 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 Madison Historical Society or to become a member or volunteer, please visit www.madisonhistoricalsociety.org or call 973-377-0722 x 8.

If you are a member of a non-profit organization or know of one that you would like to see featured on this site, please let us know in the comments or send an e-mail to kelly@thehistorygirl.com.
