PHS volunteers welcomed 19 Brownies from Hillsdale to the museum on November 18th. The troop spent the afternoon learning about the Lenape Indians through interactive activities and exhibits. They also received a tour of the museum’s exhibits to learn about early Dutch and Victorian everyday life and houses.

|The Pascack Historical Society Museum is open all year long. We offer educational and enrichment programs for all age groups- tiny tots to senior citizens. Our barrier-free Museum is the home of thousands of artifacts and many displays that chronicle the life of the Pascack Valley from Lenape Indian days until the present. Special exhibits take place throughout the year on subjects pertaining to the origins of the people of northern New Jersey.
Special group tours at other hours may be arranged by calling (201) 573-0307.
We are located at 19 Ridge Avenue in Park Ridge, NJ.
|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.
Funding has been made possible in part through grant funds administered by the Bergen County Department of Cultural and Historic Affairs, Department of Parks, through a general operating support grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission, a division of the Department of State.
