Historical Organization of the Week: Friends of the Abraham Staats House

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 Friends of the Abraham Staats House, Inc. The Friends of the Abraham Staats House was established in 1999 and incorporated in 2004 to preserve and care for this historic 1740 structure which served as the headquarters of General von Steuben during the second Middlebrook Encampment in 1779.

The Friends' mission is to support the ongoing care and restoration of the house and its grounds, and to research and interpret the history of the property and its people. The goal is to foster an understanding of this history and its relationship to the history of South Bound Brook, surrounding communities, the State of New Jersey and our Country. To promote this understanding, the Friends develop and present public and educational programs, exhibits, publications and presentations in various media.

The Friends' rely on memberships, fundraising, and countless volunteers to continue its mission. For more information on programs, special events, and exhibits hosted by the Friends of Abraham Staats or to become a member or volunteer, please visit or call 732-469-5836.
