Members & Friends of the Hackettstown Historical Society
It has been a very good year for us. We had successful fund raising
that allowed us to have a beautiful new outdoor sign installed. Thanks
to the Hacketstown Council our Museum was scrapped and painted. They
made our museum “Pretty Again”
The renovations continued with a new walkway, front porch and railing.
We are very grateful to the Hackettstown council and especially Scott
Sheldon for making this happen.
We had a wonderful collection of Leni Lanape Indian artifacts. The
culture, customs and lifeways were on display; I hope everyone saw it.
Centenary College is 150 years old in 2017. We have put together a
display with pictures from the beginning in 1867 to the present.
The ladies of the society are working on a Christmas fundraising
You can hang them on a door, fireplace mantel or tree. I must say; they
are very nice.
All proceeds going to the museum.
Please remember, the museum is ever changing, I love the quote,
“History comes alive at our House.” Please come and bring the children.
Meetings are held at the American Legion Post 164, Willow Grove Street,
Hackettstown on the first Tuesday of the month at 7:30 pm.
