When the Hunterdon County Historical Society (HCHS) was formed in 1885, our stated mission was “to aid in the discovery, collection, and preservation of every variety of material illustrative of the history of Hunterdon County and of New Jersey.” After 132 years of pursuing our mission, our museum, library, and archives are filled with objects, textiles, portraits, written histories and genealogies, maps, newspapers, archival manuscripts, and many other interesting items that preserve and document the rich history and tradition of Hunterdon County. This site was conceived as a way for the Society to digitally share some of the highlights of our many collections with the general public so that we can fulfill our mission to collect, preserve, and share our history. Although it is starting off small, check back with us, for we intend for this digital library to grow!
