Members welcome at the Milltown Historical Society!
The Milltown Public Library and the Milltown Historical Society recently collaborated for the second time on a photography contest featuring pictures taken in our boro. There are many beautiful images, and its always interesting to see how different artists can make some of the same scenes look so different just by how they shoot their photos.
The pictures have just been hung in the Jane Strimple meeting room of the Public Library, where they will be on display until the end of…Continue

When I get a request from a new member for some specific picture, or information, I think how useful it would be if I could find a way to search for that information. Especially if it exists on our own website! To help us search better, add tags that describe what you add. For example "1950s" or "Raritan River Railroad".
Thanks, and if you find any new pictures, please add them to the site. We'd all love to see them.
