The Tewksbury Historical Society is a New Jersey not-for-profit corporation and was organized for the purpose of furthering research into and the preservation and dissemination of the history of the Township of Tewksbury. The Society requests donations of documents, records and small artifacts related to Tewksbury’s History for its archives.
Society membership is open to anyone interested in the history of Tewksbury Township. Members receive a quarterly newsletter and advance notice of all programs and events the Society holds throughout the year. The Society holds three regular meetings per year on the 3rd Sunday in January, March, and May with a 4th being the Covered Dish Supper with program in November, each with an outstanding historical speaker.
The Society also sponsors a bi-annual Barn Tour/House and Garden in the summer, a Juried Art Show in October, and participates in the Oldwick Town Sale in the spring. All of these events, including the November Supper, were canceled for 2020 due to COVID-19. Members may volunteer at one or all of these events but are not required to do so. A membership camaraderie among the volunteers has developed and all are welcome. Anyone interested in volunteering for any of the cited events for 2021 may call THS Headquarters at 908-832-6734 or email email@example.com.
