About: The Sayreville Historical Society was founded in 1974 with the mission of preserving, researching, and making accessible to the public the history of Sayreville, NJ and the surrounding region. Membership is open to all. With membership comes the opportunity to serve on a number committees that help the society continue to operate successfully and continue to grow as it has continually done for almost forty years. The Sayreville Historical Society prides itself on its ability to educate, inform, and entertain the public both through our museum, a brick schoolhouse built in 1885 that houses over five thousand artifacts, and community outreach, which includes the production and sale of books, DVDs, and pamphlets, conducting and making available to the public oral histories with Sayreville residents, genealogical research, and actively moderating both a YouTube and Facebook page.

The Society meets on the second Thursday of each month, September through June at 7:00 pm, at the Sayreville Senior Center. Each meeting is highlighted by a guest speaker, and concludes with light refreshments and baked goods.

Visit: In 1984, Sayreville New School No.1 became the permanent home of the Sayreville Historical Museum. The museum is located at 425 Main Street, near the corner of Pulaski Avenue and is open every Sunday from 1:30 to 4:00 PM. Docents are also available upon request to conduct group tours. If you are interesting in visiting the museum on a day other than Sunday, please contact us by phone or email, and we would be happy to accommodate your group.
