Organization of the Week: Batsto Citizens Committee

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 Batsto Citizens Committee. Founded in 1956, the Batsto Citizens Committee, Inc., aids the State of New Jersey in its development of Batsto Village as a historic site. Its purpose was to advise, assist and promote the restoration and interpretation of the historic and natural aspects of Batsto Village.

In 1997 the Committee reorganized and became incorporated as the Batsto Citizens Committee, Inc. (BCCI), and continues to follow the same objectives. The Committee lends whatever assistance it can to the administration of Wharton State Forest and representatives of the State Park Service. This may be in the form of time, money, expertise, or a variety of mutually agreed projects.

The Batsto Citizens Committee relies on memberships, fundraising, and countless volunteers to continue its mission. For more information on programs, special events, and exhibits hosted by the Batsto Citizens Committee or to become a member or volunteer, please visit
