There is no better way to revisit and reminisce about
eras gone by than through photographs.
The Historical Society's photograph collection
gives us a glimpse into Hackettstown's former residents; their
families, the places they lived, the businesses they built, people they
socialized with with, and the lifestyles they led. Photographs are a
timeline, quietly detailing how the people and the area changed over
the years with each new generation.
The photographs available both on this site and in
the Museum provide insights into the lives of the people and the places
that contributed to the history of Hackettstown.
