The West Milford Museum

The Heritage Committee, which voluntarily staffs the West Milford Museum, has worked diligently to create an environment that fosters a unique educational and cultural experience for visitors. West Milford and the surrounding environs enjoy a rich and diverse history that is preserved and displayed through permanent and changing exhibits of artifacts, documents and photographs. Theme exhibits are featured on topics such as political memorabilia, the Civil War, WWI & II, weaponry, farming tools, quilting, currency, Native American artifacts, daily life in the nineteenth century, notable events, and local artists, past and present. Special events such as the Reminisce Series provide a forum for long time local residents to share stories about West Milford during the last century.  Demonstrations are scheduled periodically on skills and crafts employed by area residents during the past three centuries. Additionally, reenactments of historical events and debates are planned. Small recitals of various musical styles are scheduled occasionally, including local student presentations. A video viewing area is available, allowing local historians and educators to create and present customized lectures on varying topics, suitable for all age groups. The museum library contains numerous books on American history and lifestyles, and is a great resource for those who are involved in researching local and state history. The staff at the West Milford Museum welcomes suggestions for new and interesting exhibits and programs. We invite and encourage residents to loan or donate personal collections and artifacts for display at the museum. Donations to the West Milford Museum can be brought to the Museum during hours of operation or mailed to the West Milford Heritage Committee, Township of West Milford, 1480 Union Valley Road, West Milford, NJ 07480.
