• Overview

    Creativity is the theme of the Harrison Township Historical Society's newest exhibition at the Old Town Hall Museum entitled Originals: 150 Years of Artistic Expression.  The first floor gallery is filled with paintings, drawings and folk art from the 19th and 20th centuries, all drawn from the Society's rich holdings.  The exhibition celebrates New Jersey's 350th anniversary by focusing on the theme of innovation.  Folk art dominates the work from the 19th century.  An album quilt from Richwood and a remarkable portfolio of sketches by Josiah B. Chester of Ewan, on exhibit for the first time, are highlights.  Twentieth century work includes paintings by Mullica Hill's Paul Colson, including a tri-partite screen that was recently restored and on exhibit for the first time.  Also premiering is a landscape painted by Otto Rick, a German prisoner of war who worked on a farm in Richwood during World War II.


    Open every weekend 1 - 4 pm except Easter Day.
