Burlington County History and Historic Preservation Awards.

For the Fourth year in a row the Delran Historical Society has won an award from the Burlington County History Recognition Program. This year the award was given to our society for the work that we did to make Delran History Day possible. The membership of our society and Board of Directors are how we make these great events possible. Video in YouTube link below with entire ceremony.

Community Experience During Covid-19 – Project

Delran Historical Society would like local residents to be a part of our local history by helping our society document the unprecedented times that we our living in. Our society wants to make sure that in the future, people will be able to look back in our collection and see how Delran and all of our residents were affected by the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Submissions for this project can be in the form of a few sentences, an essay, photos, artwork, etc. We plan to create a file in our archives that will hold all the submissions we receive. In the future we will display some of these submissions in our display cases at the municipal building and possibly on our website and rotate them periodically.

Any residents that are interested in participating in this project can send their submissions through our email address at contactus@delranhistoricalsociety.org or to our mailing address at PO Box 1201 Delran, NJ 08075. Our board wishes all of our local residents good health and safety through these trying times. We look forward to having interesting events that get everyone in the community involved again, after we get through this together.

New Tab Early Homes of Delran

Be sure to check out the new info in the Early Homes of Delran Tab which describes the history to some of the historical homes in Delran.

We are always looking to discover more information about the other historical homes in our community.

We encourage anyone who owns one of Delran’s historical homes or anyone who lived in them to consider sharing any old photos, information or stories you have about the home. Historical homes help to give a unique character to Delran which can not be found anywhere else.

Please email us at contactus@delranhistoricalsociety.org  and include a phone number so we can contact you. -Thank You

 

Help Preserve Revolutionary War Battlefield Site in Burlington County

Burlington County currently has no preserved American Revolutionary War Battlefield sites. But one Revolutionary War site named Petticoat Bridge Battlefield is in need of preservation. If Petticoat Bridge Battlefield is not preserved it is very likely that the 197 acres of farmland in Burlington County will be development.

If you would like to see the Petticoat Bridge Battlefield site preserved then please sign the petition in the link below. Thank You For Your Support!
