The Bergen County Historical Society is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization, founded in 1902. Please consider joining us in this endeavor to build a modern museum building on BCHS land at Historic New Bridge Landing. To fulfill its role as steward of an irreplaceable heritage, the BCHS needs to transition to a professionally staffed organization with a modern museum building. We need to discover heretofore-untold stories, which are all together more representative not only of the cultural diversity evident to scholars in the area’s prehistoric inhabitation and its colonial settlement, but which is also immediately relevant to our continuing cultural enrichment in the present day. At this moment of opportunity and challenge, we invite you to help us fashion an authentic experience of our past for the benefit of the broadest possible audience.
