Society Meetings

The Pequannock Township Historical Society meets on the first Tuesday of each month. We currently assemble at the American Legion Post #242 in Pompton Plains NJ at 7:30 pm.  Our Events Committee meets monthly at the Martin Berry House.

Please see our calendar for future meeting dates.
