Join the Phillipsburg Historical Society, new member's always welcome - President, Brian L. Otto Sr.
As in coming President I will be working hard to continue the hard work Pam has done. There is a new Executive Board that will also be working hard. We will do our best to make this a success.We will not be able to move forward without our full membership working along side us. There is still much work to be done. I look forward in working with everyone.
The Phillipsburg Area Historical Society is made up of dedicated individuals who are passionate about preserving the history of the area.
Our purpose is to gather, preserve and make available to a wide audience materials such as art, books, clippings, photographs, etc. pertinent to the history of the area; to encourage preservation of historic structures and those of architectural merit; work with the region’s schools and faculty to promote an awareness of the region’s history; work with area organizations and government entities to promote historic/cultural tourism; disseminate and make available materials relating to the area’s history; restore and maintain the Roseberry Homestead; build an organization that will carry on these tasks.
For purposes of research and expenditures, the Phillipsburg area is defined as the Town of Phillipsburg, the boroughs of Alpha and Bloomsbury, and the following townships; Pohatcong, Harmony, Lopatcong, and Greenwich.
It is with pride and pleasure that our society members serve the community.
