The Pascack Historical Society is a 501(c)(3) organization that was incorporated on October 13, 1942 by a group of historically minded citizens. It is a membership-based not for profit organization that promotes and preserves the early history of the Pascack Valley and its peoples.   

We have NEVER had a paid employee, and we think that is a remarkable accomplishment. The Pascack Historical Society receives no regular government funding and relies on membership dues and donations to keep our boat afloat. Your donations are always appreciated and welcome.
