It's a great opportunity to meet people with a common interest while knowing that you are helping to preserve local history and support the Bergen County Historical Society. Another excellent reason is except for fundraising events (for example: Candle Light Concerts, Beer & Wine Festivals, Bus Tours), entry to events are free to BCHS members. At the fundraising events we offer a reduced price to members.
Membership cards are now available via free download from the membership software.
Upon request, a member can be emailed a membership card.
