Historical Organization of the Week: Morris County 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 Morris County Historical Society. The mission of the Morris County Historical Society is to discover, preserve, and make known the history of Morris County, New Jersey through exhibits, programs, publications, and preservation advocacy. The Society owns and maintains Acorn Hall, built in 1853 and donated by Mary Crane Hone in 1971. Through grants and fundraising, Acorn Hall has been restored and features changing exhibits throughout the year. The Society also maintains a Victorian research library, a large costume collection, and a Victorian-style garden maintained by the Home Garden Club of Morristown.

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 Morris County Historical Society or to become a member or volunteer, please visit or call 973-267-3465.
