Our Philosophy and Future

In March 2010, the BCHS embarked on a new adventure in history with the creation of two family friendly spaces to explore Burlington County’s past in interactive ways. This evolution came from an extensive strategic planning process that now has BCHS poised to become a leader in history education in Burlington County and the state of New Jersey.  We are changing how history is presented!

Exciting plans are in the works!  For our 100th anniversary in 2015 we are planning a totally new exhibit geared toward children and families.  Using innovative techniques for the interpretation of primary sources and artifacts pertaining to New Jersey history, it will not only expand public awareness of our historical resources, but also help to foster new advocates for the study and preservation of New Jersey history.  This exhibit will make our historical collections accessible on a whole new level to a brand new audience.
