The Olde Stone House Historic Village
A Little About Us.....
The Washington Township Historical Commission is a driven set of volunteers who are determined to keep the Olde Stone House Historical site part of the Washington Township Community. The Commission is a small group of volunteers who have a common interest in local history and are striving to promote public awareness of the Townships' past history, while also keeping up with restoration projects of the buildings on site. Appointed by the Mayor for staggered terms, these Volunteer Commissioners work tirelessly to balance hosting events for the public and raising money for restoration projects at The Olde Stone House Village.

2019 saw the village's flagship building, the Olde Stone House, receive the NJ State Historical Registry and Federal Register.

We strive to build an educational community while making a positive impact with all of our pursuits by hosting events throughout the year to raise funds to help restore and preserve each building.
