About the Advocates for New Jersey History

The Advocates for New Jersey History was founded in the early 1990's as a friends organization for the New Jersey Historical Commission. But within a few years the members became aware of two important considerations: first, that one of the major accomplishments of the Historical Commission had been to create and bring into awareness a history community statewide; and second, that no one state agency could survive and thrive unless and until the entire history community grew and throve.

From the mid 1990's on, the Advocates for New Jersey History has sought to build awareness of the public history activities in the state, to increase support for high quality, responsive and professional state and private agencies engaged in public history, to advocate for public support for historical agencies, and to serve on public history and history education, heritage tourism, and historic preservation.

Membership is open to all concerned citizens who wish to join in the effort to give New Jersey a pride in its past, to celebrate the contributions of all peoples to the development of this state and nation, to encourage the researching and writing of New Jersey history, and to stimulate support for the public and private institutions, agencies and resources engaged in public history, education and preservation.
