WELCOME to the web site for the
The Historical Society
of Hamilton Township
Since 1944 the Society’s Constitution has stated: “ The purpose of the Society shall be: the collection and preservation of material relating to the local history of Hamilton Township, Mercer County, New Jersey, and its vicinity. This shall be promoted by the reading of papers, by public lectures, by the report of special committees appointed to inquire into particular subjects of interest, by the erection and dedication of tablets or other markers to identify important and approved historic sites, by publications and other such means as the Society deems expedient.”
Along with regular monthly meetings with key note presentations we also operate the Historical John Abbott II House. Meetings are open to the public as is the Abbott House.
