Our community is more than a place; it is stories of lives lived here and the activities and things that they have created—and continue to create. A half-century ago, in 1971, the Harrison Township Historical Society was established to preserve and give new life to a century-old landmark, Old Town Hall, built in 1871, and to save and tell the stories of this place.

In celebration of our 50th year, and the building’s 150th, we are taking a glance backwards through the exhibitions we have presented and the objects we have collected to create a panoramic overview of Old Harrison Township’s heritage—the “signs” of our time.

The topics we have explored are wide-ranging—family and community life, transportation, commerce, education, religious life, sports and leisure, paleontology, diverse communities, arts and music, architecture. Each of these projects has resulted in new acquisitions resulting in a remarkably rich local history collection. SIGNS OF OUR TIME draws on those resources to tell our story and that of Old Harrison.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Old Town Hall this Fall and celebrating the building’s and the Society’s anniversaries. Come out and take a look through history on Saturdays and Sundays from 1:00 to 4:00 pm through December 11th at 62-64 South Main Street, Mullica Hill.
