Come visit us in Historic Barnegat, NJ…
The Barnegat Historical Society is a non-profit organization founded in 1964 when the State of New Jersey celebrated its 300th anniversary. The aim of the society is to preserve old local buildings and shops which house a collection of artifacts and records that detail the rich history of the village of Barnegat.
The Society’s Heritage Village…
Is situated on East Bay Avenue and consists of four major buildings and three smaller structures – the Lippincott-Faulkenburg House, the Barber Shop, the Edwards House, the Butcher Shop, a corn crib, a motel cabin and a three-hole necessary.
The Heritage Village is open the first Sunday of each month from 1 to 4 p.m. Private group tours can be arranged upon request.
Like many other non-profit organizations we rely on donations and our various fundraising events to fund the maintenance and restoration of our Heritage Village. Major fundraising events include a Victorian Tea held in May, our annual flea market held the last Saturday of July and Quilts Along the Bay, our annual quilt show held in September.
