How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

A new exhibition was opened this past October. "Craftsmen and Clients" gives focus to three emerging crafts in Monmouth County during the 18th and 19th centuries.  The relationship between cabinetmakers, silversmiths and potters and their clients influenced their crafts and the products they produced.
In the current economic environment, the Monmouth County Historical Association has maintained programs and services, and was able to keep the four historic sites open to the public during the season.
