The Pequannock Township Historical Society welcomes you! Our group of volunteers is devoted to the preservation, interpretation, and presentation of history in the Township and to maintain the Martin Berry House as a historic site for this and future generations. Be sure to visit our website devoted to the Martin Berry House.
The short story: In 2017, we worked with the Council to secure grants and other funding to enable Pequannock Township to purchase the Martin Berry House. The next step is to rehab the 1720 building and bring it up to code, which will enable us to open the building to the public and operate it as a community learning center and living-history museum. (The longer telling is on our About page.)
To achieve our goal, we need enthusiastic people to step up and join us. If you’d like to be kept informed of our activities, meetings, and events, we’d be glad to add you to our mailing list. (Questions and such? Email us directly.)
This website is a work in progress, and our Facebook page is where we devote much of our time. Going forward, the plan for this site is to showcase the rich history of Pequannock and Pompton Plains here, a little as a time. Take a look around, and — if you’d like to contribute or comment — we’d love to have you.
