“The Trenton Historical Society’s mission is the study and interpretation of Trenton’s history, preservation of its historic buildings and artifacts, and dissemination of information about New Jersey’s capital city and its illustrious past.”
Adopted by the Board of Trustees
The Trenton Historical Society is a New Jersey non-profit corporation with 501(c)3 tax-exempt status. A registered charity with the State of New Jersey, it is governed by a Board of Trustees elected by the membership at an annual organization meeting held in January. There are three standing committees (Artifacts, Education and Preservation) that carry out the work of the society. Five officers elected by the trustees administer the society and recently a part-time coordinator has been hired to assist in carrying out the society's mission.
