In 1905, at the same time plans were being made to erect a monument to commemorate the Tea Burning in Greenwich, the Cumberland County Historical Society was organized as a non-profit corporation. The first recorded meeting was held in the old Cumberland County Court House on Broad Street in Bridgeton at 2 PM on December 2, 1908. Today, the Society is very active in promoting knowledge concerning the history of Cumberland County and has much to offer its members.

This free program is funded by the Friends of Vineland Public Library.
