The Waretown Historical Society was formed in February 1968. After a long hiatus, it re-formed in 1997. Since then, the society has played an active role in the life of the community. It sponsors regular slide and lecture programs on genealogical and/or historical topics at the Waretown Library, as well as organized tours of sites all over the state of New Jersey.

The Society's mission is to preserve historical and genealogical information for future generations. They are also committed to the restoration and preservation of older buildings, antiques and artifacts. The Society's museum is a replica of The old Red Schoolhouse that was used from the mid 1800's to 1958, when it was torn down to make way for a First Aid Squad.

 
 

The Society brings about a new appreciation of Waretown and its unique history by sponsoring educational programs, exhibits, tours, and lectures.

A quarterly newsletter which includes features on local people, buildings and places of historic interest.
