What we do

Preserve Our History

The BHS’s top priority is to preserve Bordentown’s rich history. These efforts are supported by our members, fundraising events and historic preservation grants.

Inspire Our Community

Our events are more than just preservation fundraising. We enrich and inspire the Bordentown community and its connection to our small town’s huge historic impact.

Grow Our Future

History doesn’t end with our generation! Our goal is to develop preservation programs with longevity and excite the next generation of historians to carry our efforts forward.

Get involved.

The Bordentown Historical Society is made up of volunteers who are dedicated to preserving the history of Bordentown for future generations. We maintain our society’s sites, museum, artifacts and archives.  We accomplish this as part of our mission to preserve, teach and inspire curiosity about Bordentown’s rich history.

Raise the Roof for Clara!

Join us to “Raise the Roof for Clara” and restore the Clara Barton Schoolhouse. This fundraising campaign seeks to raise $50,000 to replace the roof and provide other updates in order to preserve the Schoolhouse and create an engaging experience for visitors. It will take all of us and our networks to meet our goal on time for Clara’s 200th birthday in 2021. We’re off to a great start with a $5,000 gift offered to match individual contributions dollar for dollar. We are grateful for your contributions.
