Due to the construction at the WTHS Museum, the next general meeting will be held at the WT Public Library on Tuesday, September 18, 2018 at 7:30PM. The public is always welcome and we are always looking for new members and volunteers to help keep our rich history alive!

Museum Closed Until Further Notice

The Historical Society Museum will be closed until further notice. The long awaited restoration work on the Union Schoolhouse (Historical Society & Washington Township Museum) has begun. Last year the Morris County Freeholder's awarded funds from the Morris County Preservation Trust Fund to be used towards exterior restoration at the circa 1830 schoolhouse, the oldest school in the township extant. The Historical Society is providing the matching funds. We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to a Grand Reopening in the early well as our Historic House Tour on December 8th!

The Washington Township Historical Society aims to bring together people interested in the history of Washington Township, Morris County, the state of New Jersey, and promote a better appreciation of our American heritage.

We support historical programs, archives, publications, preservation, markers, and historical collections in our museum. We are a nonprofit organization that is federally recognized as tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
