The Delran Township was established February 12, 1880. In 2009, a group of neighbors, interested in working together to preserve the unique history of Delran Township started the Delran Historical Society. The Delran Historical Society is now a 501(c)3 New Jersey Nonprofit organization. This year is our 10th anniversary.
On September 28, we are holding our first Delran History Day at the Delran Municipal Building. This is a great opportunity to browse our collection of photos, artifacts, old school records, obituaries and more. Stop by between 11 am and 4pm to enter for a chance to win an Ancestry DNA. We also invite to bring a personal treasure to our appraisal program. Mike Invankovich, Author, Auctioneer, Appraiser and Radio host will be on hand to tell you want things are worth between 12 noon and 2pm. Appraisals are $5 per item but free to watch. Please do not bring anything you can’t carry. We also request that you leave guns, rifles, swords, knives and other weapons at home.
