Organization of the Week: Lambertville 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 Lambertville Historical Society. The Lambertville Historical Society is a non-profit volunteer organization incorporated in 1973, dedicated to promoting, inspiring, and encouraging the preservation of Lambertville, New Jersey's architecture and history through education, community involvement, and by preserving and maintaining the James Wilson Marshall House Museum.

In addition to maintaining the Marshall House Museum, the Society offers exciting exhibits, such as a pictorial history of the local shad fishing industry and memorabilia from Lambertville's industrial past. Since 1982, the Society has hosted an annual Autumn House Tour, which draws hundreds of visitors each year. The Society's archive contains over 4,000 pieces and is constantly growing. In addition, public programs, walking tours, and educational activities are offered year-round by the organization.

The Lambertville 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 Lambertville Historical Society or to become a member or volunteer, please call 609-397-0770 or visit www.lambertvillehistoricalsociety.org.
