The Foundation was established in 1993 to preserve South Jersey's history and to exhibit it in connection with American History. In 1996, the South Jersey Museum of American History opened in Berlin, Camden County, NJ. 10 years later, the Museum moved to Glassboro, Gloucester County, NJ. In January of 2017, the now renamed Museum of American History in Deptford, NJ, moved to its present location at 138 Andaloro Way, Deptford, NJ 08093-1627. We continue to focus on South Jersey's rich, historical heritage.
