Organization of the Week: Mountainside Restoration 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 Mountainside Restoration Committee. Established in 1984 to save the Deacon Andrew Hetfield Home from demolition, the Mountainside Historic Restoration Committee has been entrusted by the Borough of Mountainside to preserve and maintain the history and historic value of the community. The Committee strives to collect and safeguard information and artifacts related to the history of the Borough of Mountainside. The Committee operates out of the Deacon Hetfield House, which was moved to Borough property and operates it as a house museum. In November 2013, the organization saved a second home from demolition, the Levi Cory House, which it plans to restore and open to the public.

The Mountainside Restoration Committee relies on memberships, fundraising, and countless volunteers to continue its mission. For more information on programs, special events, and exhibits hosted by the Mountainside Restoration Committee or to become a member or volunteer, please call 908-232-9282 or visit
