About Monmouth County Historical Association



Mission Statement

The Monmouth County Historical Association (MCHA) collects, preserves, and interprets its extensive museum, library, and archival collections that relate to Monmouth County's history and culture and makes these resources available to the widest possible audience. MCHA promotes the study and appreciation of regional and national history through educational programming, publications, special exhibits, and research services. MCHA also preserves and interprets five significant historic sites which represent the County's vanishing architectural heritage. Through its pursuit of these objectives, the Association enriches the quality of life in Monmouth County by preserviing and passing on knowledge of its diverse heritage for future generations.


The oldest historical organization in Monmouth County, the Monmouth County Historical Association was founded in 1898 to collect, preserve, and interpret the region's heritage. The Historical Associaton’s headquarters moved to Freehold in 1931, into a newly built brick Georgian style structure designed by architect J. Hallam Conover. Today, the Association is recognized as one of the country's leading local history organizations and is well-known for its outstanding museum and library collections, as well as for its five significant historic properties: the Covenhoven House (1752) in Freehold, the Allen House (before 1740) in Shrewsbury, Marlpit Hall (circa 1756) and the Taylor-Butler House (ca. 1853) in Middletown, and the Holmes-Hendrickson House (circa 1754) in Holmdel.

The Monmouth County Historical Association is in its second century of service to the community. Each year our visitation and membership numbers grow, most noticeably in the area of school groups, who make up well over half of our annual attendance. The members and trustees of the Historical Association are committed to the responsible stewardship of the historic properties and collections in our care, and to sharing them with the public.
