Exciting things are happening with the Lincoln Park Historical Society!

We hope you have been enjoying our historical postings on our Facebook page and have been following our progress as we update the exhibits in the Lincoln Park History Museum.   Some major announcements:

  • Openings:
    1. The Museum will be open on the following days:
      • First Tuesday of every month from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM
      • Second Sunday of every month from 12 noon to 4:00PM
      • By special appointment (schools, scouts, etc.)   -just contact us at lincolnparknjhistory@gmail.com and we can work out a day and time that is good for you or your organization.  
  • Membership:  We are doing away with the concept of membership and working on a donation drive.   We are doing this to cut mailing costs of membership cards so we can utilize those funds at the museum for frames, artifacts and printing costs.  Donations must be check or cash as we are not longer accepting Venmo or PayPal.   

How do you get involved?   There are many avenues of support that is needed:

Monetary Donations

  • We need monetary donations:  It takes money to run a museum.   We are currently seeking a 2023 donation of $25 per family to help the museum in its operational expense. We hope you can show your support for 2023!  If you cannot afford the donation suggested amount any amount would be appreciated so we can continue to operate and serve the community.  Your donations will assist us with our current and future plans and will be used for securing artifacts, buying frames to display pictures/other items, and day to day operation expenses.  



We are always in need of artifacts from Lincoln Park and the surrounding areas (pictures, letters, Lincoln Park memorabilia, etc.).   We need to keep our history alive.   If you have some old pictures or artifacts and are not ready to part with them, contact us and we will arrange to make copies or take photos so it can be shared with the rest of the town.   If you like to donate Items or pictures they can be dropped off during our opening times or contact us at lincolnparknjhistory@gmail.com and we can make pick up or drop off arrangements.
