Become a Historical Society Volunteer
The Hackettstown Historical Society welcomes the participation of all volunteers interested in the history of Hackettstown, its ancestral families and the surrounding areas. Thanks to the generous assistance of our dedicated Board of Trustees, tireless officers and these volunteers, the Hackettstown Historical Society continues to maintain and expand our programs and collections.

The Society encourages volunteer opportunities to help broaden its mission and elevate education about Hackettstown and its significance to the history of the Musconectong Valley region. Whatever your interests, you will find an opportunity to learn and contribute in an organization that invites your active involvement.
