Historical Society Again In Search Of A Home

NJTODAY.NET's online business directory

LINDEN—The Linden Historical Society is once again seeking a home to house its collection of historical artifacts, memorabilia and photographs given into its care by the City of Linden and its residents.

The society’s museum had most recently been located at the Linwood Inn, but the business plans to expand into that space.

In 1998, the city and historical society signed an agreement to jointly seek “an historic site to house a permanent collection of Linden’s archives and artifacts.” However, the sites proposed over the years have failed to win approval for a variety of reasons.

The society has launched an on-line museum to continue presenting Linden’s history to the public while the search for a permanent home goes on. The website is located at http://lindenhistoricalsociety.org.

The society is planning its own version of the popular PBS TV program “Antiques Road Show” by offering historical programs and exhibits to clubs using photo screens and portable cases. If you are a club leader interested in hosting the 2010 “road show”, call 1-908-523-0003 to get on the schedule.
