Public Library welcomes Cumberland County Historical Society
Cumberland County Historical Society
Trustee, Dr. Charles Valentine, will enlighten audience members in Cumberland
County Historical Society’s history and mission. Please join Dr.
Valentine for this discussion on Monday, April 23, from 5:30
– 7:30 p.m. at the Vineland Public Library located at
1058 E. Landis Avenue, where you will learn about the Cumberland County
museums maintained by the Society and the various special events that
the Society offers during the year.
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.
All areas of the library are accessible to people with disabilities.
