The goal of PNHS is to use our building for meetings, and eventually to establish a museum to showcase the memorabilia of the “golden age” of our unique village. We have already acquired donations of many things of historic value. We need your help to make this happen. We will be posting updates on our website and would love to share this journey with you.

You may send a check payable to the Port Norris Historical Society (PNHS) PO Box 187, Port Norris, NJ 08349 or you may use your credit card to DONATE NOW.
