The Phillipsburg Historical Society membership is comprised of a diverse group of people with many different backgrounds, all with different skills and talents. The one common denominator that is shared by all is the love of history.
We seek out history and learn while doing so. For some, it is that search for knowledge that attracts us, learning new things about our area, and the people who lived here. For others, it is the touchable artifacts, items left behind by those who lived before us that tell a story. It may be the prospect of discovering something like a photograph, book, journal or a letter that no one has seen. And for some, it is the ability of being able to bring the past to life, whether by dressing up and re-enacting or reliving that moment in time. Interest in making old things look new is to many peoples liking, or preserving and restoring a historic building for future generations.
We currently have most of our records at the Phillipsburg Public Library for public research and viewing. Next to the Phillipsburg Municipal Building, located at 675 Corliss Avenue. Archived in this space are various records, books and artifacts. There is no list of holdings at this time. The librarian holds the key to the filing cabinets.
We have one antique glass display, thanks to the generosity of Courtney Curzi, located on the main level of the Phillipsburg Municipal Building (outside the Clerk's Office.) Stop by and take a look!
