Mission Statement

The mission of the Stoutsburg Sourland African American Museum is to tell the story of the unique culture, experiences, and contributions of the African American community of the Sourland Mountain Region of Central New Jersey.

Description

The Stoutsburg Sourland African American Museum was born out of decades’ worth of research conducted by two of its advisory board members, Beverly Mills and Elaine Buck. Story after story came to light about the early African American settlers of this region, some of whom were their ancestors. The two decided to co-author a book, If These Stones Could Talk, to provide a clearer understanding of the African American experience in the Sourland Mountain Region and Hopewell Valley. Mills and Buck were hired to lecture in 2014 by The Sourland Conservancy. That lecture, entitled "A Proud Heritage", sparked a series of conversations that would lead to a partnership between the Stoutsburg Cemetery Association and the Sourland Conservancy. The product of that union was the Stoutsburg Sourland African American Museum.
