About Old Town Hall Museum
A key contributing structure in the Mullica Hill Historic District, Old Town Hall is a local landmark that presides over the corner of South Main Street and Woodstown Road. Built in 1871 by the “Town Hall Association,” a private stock company, this historic building served as the township’s seat of government for nearly a century. In addition, its downstairs rooms housed a number of small businesses as well as a Quaker school. The second floor auditorium was the site of dances, lectures, graduations, Grange entertainments and the first services of Mount Calvary Baptist Church.
In 1971, the Harrison Township Committee created the Harrison Township Historical Society to preserve and develop a new purpose for the historic building. Through this innovative public/private partnership, Old Town Hall took on a new life in its second century as a museum focusing on our community’s rich history. Residents and visitors alike today enjoy the Society’s exhibitions, events and programs.
Old Town Hall is listed on the National and New Jersey State Registers of Historic Places and recorded by the Historic American Buildings Survey, Library of Congress.
