History of Pennsville Township Historical Society

In 1987, Pennsville Mayor Stu Belcher had a idea that our Township should have a historical society to collect and preserve the history of our community.  After placing a ad in the newspaper, the first meeting of interest was held on October 29, 1987.  In January 28, 1988 the group became official:  The Pennsville Township Historical Society.  By June 9, 1988, PTHS was officially incorporated  as a 501(c)3, non-profit corporation of New Jersey. 

Today our Church Landing Road Museum Complex consists of 8 buildings:  a 1850's Victorian Farmhouse, 130+ year old Floating Fishing Cabin, 100 year old Wash House, the Perry Farm Privy, a one-room Schoolhouse Display in a Guard Building from DuPont Chambers Works, the Riverview Beach Park Museum, and two other buildings that feature many other displays of local interest.
