A Historic Opportunity For You
You chance to help preserve local history is here! By joining the Freehold Township Heritage Society, you will help the Freehold community to get to know the historicl background of their "hometown".
We need your talents to help residents, school children, and visitors from out of town understand and interpret how we got where we are. You would have a part in giving educational experiences to them to see what it was like generations ago as preious residents struggled with their particular issues.
This is an exciting chance for you to be a part of giving back. We have many opportunities to become involved. You can choose from participating in our Spring and Fall festivals, Spring Tea, holiday programs, giving house and farm tours, sharing your knowledge, putting our written history in the computer, and providing educational opportunities to become an important part in preserving and passing on the important history of our area.
Any areas that you have experience in that you think would help us in our endeavors would be greatly appreciated, and new ideas are always welcome. See our Committee tab for our committee list.
From our beginning in the early 1600's as the County Seat to our role in the Revolutionary War, to the importance of our farms in feeding the people and generating policies and legislation, to the Underground Railroad, and the building of our community, you can have a part in passing this important information on to the next generation.
Consider being a part of this great cause, become a leader, and join us as we strive to reach out to you, our neighbors, to join our cause.
The Society has been in existence for 10 years, and we are a 501c3 non-profit corporation. We welcome any help you can give.
