Location

         

Since 1982, the Tuckerton Historical Society's Museum has been located in the Giffordtown Schoolhouse, an 1884 building with a stove, model of the Tuckerton Wireless (1912-1955), antique tools and many other artifacts that pertain to the school.

The museum showcases artifacts from the early Quakers, Tuckerton, Little Egg Harbor, Tuckerton Railroad, and Tucker's Island.

In September 2002, the museum received a donation of the "Osborn Papers" from William Birdsall, a descendant of Richard Osborn.
 

The Tuckerton Historical Society produces many events, including Rocking Chair gatherings, historic craft demonstrations, antique flea markets and picnics to name a few.

They also host programs throughout the spring through fall on historical topics of interests from local Native American culture, environmental history, Christmas exhibits, etc. Call the Society for the schedule of events.
