About the Upcoming Project and The Bergen County Historical Society
The Historical Society has long wanted to build a museum to make its thousands of artifacts and documents available for public display and study, but the project took on a special urgency after Superstorm Sandy. Many of the organization’s priceless heirlooms and antiquities were destroyed or damaged when a storage facility unexpectedly flooded during the storm that ravaged the east coast. It was only through the determined efforts of BCHS members that any of the stored treasures were saved. The calamity galvanized the group in its mission to raise funds to build a safe and accessible place for these historical items.
Founded in 1902, the Bergen County Historical Society is a non-profit organization that was established to preserve important evidence of our past and to promote historical literacy through interesting programs and publications. The foundation relies upon donations, membership dues and volunteer contributions of both time and talent to support its efforts. One of its most important projects is in protecting and interpreting the Revolutionary War battleground at Historic New Bridge Landing in River Edge where the Steuben House overlooks the Bridge That Saved a Nation. It survived more of the Revolution than any other spot in America, having served as a headquarters, battleground and encampment ground in every year of the war.
