Mission Statement

The mission of the Salem County Historical Society is to seek, document, preserve, interpret and perpetuate Salem County's heritage, and to enhance the awareness and appreciation of that heritage, through its research, collections, functions, exhibits, educational programs and publications, for the benefit of future generations and for the betterment of the community.

Description

The Salem County Historical Society composed of a museum, educational space, and a reserach library, is housed in four interconnected historic houses, the centerpiece of which is Alexander Grant's Mansion House (1721).

The Salem County Historical Society offers many educational programs for all ages.The Society has an exceptional collection of furniture, paintings, textiles, glass, china, silver, documents, tools and other prized possessions made possible through the generosity of interested persons and families. This collection enables us to graphically convey to visitors to the Society an understanding of the work, play, society, and life styles of local inhabitants from generations past.

The collections of the Josephine Jaquett Memorial Library constitute one of southern New Jersey's most important genealogical and local history resources. Begun over a century ago, the collection includes primary and secondary resources from the 17th to the 20th centuries reflecting the civic, cultural, social and family history of Salem County, NJ -- site of the oldest permanent English-speaking settlement in the Delaware Valley.
