Over a Century Ago...

Over a century ago a group of public-spirited citizens saw the need for a public hall in Mullica Hill where community events and town meetings could take place. That recognition of need became a reality in 1871 with the completion of Old Town Hall. They chose a prominent location at the intersection of South Main Street and Woodstown Road, keeping watch over the village.

100 Years Later...

One hundred years later, another group of dedicated citizens envisioned the building’s return as a focus for community life, this time as a museum and cultural center. The members of The Harrison Township Historical Society worked hard to realize their dream and have since established a national reputation for award-winning exhibitions and quality programs for school children, families and adults, centering on the rich cultural heritage of Harrison Township and southern New Jersey.

An extensive restoration of Old Town Hall was completed in 1996. This project was funded by a grant from the New Jersey Historic Trust and support from the Township of Harrison and private contributions.

Today...

The Harrison Township Historical Society is headquartered in Old Town Hall. The building is listed as a key contributing structure in Mullica Hill’s Historic District, and is listed in the New Jersey State and National Registers of Historic Places, and is recorded by the Historic American Buildings Survey, US Department of the Interior.

The Society is supported by grants and member support as well as fundraising events like the Ground Hog Dinner Fall Festival Ghost Walk, and Christmas Tree Lighting.
