Spring Lake Historical Society

Proficient Plumbing & Heating serves Monmouth County and its surrounding areas, and we offer high-quality plumbing services in Spring Lake. We thought it would be great to feature a popular spot that many of our customers frequent.

The Spring Lake Historical Society is located in the Municipal Building at 423 Warren Avenue, just a few minutes away from the Divine Park and more interesting points.

The society was established to facilitate research into the history of Spring Lake and its environs to better understand Spring Lake’s contribution to America’s democratic heritage.

Spring Lake Historical Society compiles, maintains, and exhibits materials that illustrate the settlement, development, and activity in and around Spring Lake throughout its history. These materials may include files, photos, and artifacts. They are on display at the Spring Lake Historical Society Museum.

They also accept donations of records and artifacts relating to the history of Spring Lake. Such donations can be records and photographs (on paper or other media), artifacts and memorabilia, maps and architectural documents, paintings, and manuscripts.

The Spring Lake Historical Society Museum features two galleries: the changing exhibit gallery and the permanent exhibit gallery.

The changing exhibit gallery depicts the history of a variety of Spring Lake topics. This gallery’s displays change periodically to highlight specific events and other subjects of interest in the history of Spring Lake.

The permanent exhibit gallery depicts Spring Lake’s history, beginning with the Native Americans who “vacationed” on the seashore and continuing through various eras to the present. Exhibits include relics from the Victorian era and WWII to the present time.

A general meeting of the Society is held in June each year, the Spring Lake Historical Society presents two free programs a year at the general meetings, one in the fall and one in the spring. Guest speakers in these programs include first-person interpreters of historic events and famous Americans, as well as long-time Spring Lake residents who share their knowledge of local history. All society members, as well as the general public, are invited to attend.

They also conduct various events, meetings, and tours relevant to Spring Lake’s history, and publish a newsletter several times each year with information about recent and upcoming Historical Society activity.

The Spring Lake Historical Society is a great place if you are looking to actively participate in the Jersey Shore historic community. Visit the Spring Lake Historical Society’s website for more information on membership and events.
