Historical Organization of the Week: Matawan 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 Matawan Historical Society. The Society was formed in 1969 to undertake projects to make history available to the public. Today, the Society maintains the historic 1723 Burrowes Mansion Museum in conjunction with the Borough of Matawan. The mansion is open for tours on the first and third Sundays of the month from March to December from 2:00 - 4:00 pm. Other projects undertaken by the Society include indexing historical records, publications, exhibits, and providing speakers for outside groups. 

The Society relies on memberships, fundraising, and countless volunteers to continue its mission. For more information on programs, special events, and exhibits hosted by the Matawan Historical Society or to become a member or volunteer, please visit or call 732-566-5605.
