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. On Facebook, we host the Historical Society page as well as the group Friends of Pequannock History. You can find a lot of useful historic info there.
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. We are currently entering Phase 3 of an in-depth plan 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 members. We cordially invite you to step right up and join us (PDF form) for as little as $20 per year. If you can’t wait another minute, follow this link to join the Society online!
If you’re not ready to join yet, but 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.
The Pequannock Twp. Historical Society is basically a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. (Technically we’re a 509(a)(2) society.) All are welcome at our meetings. Donations are always gratefully accepted. New members are always welcome.
