The mission of the Clayton Historic Preservation, INC. (CHP) is to collect, preserve, document, interpret and share the unique history of the Borough of Clayton, New Jersey.
Headquarters of this organization, incorporated in 1987, is the Clayton Historic Museum, at 29 East Avenue. The Borough of Clayton has graciously endowed the property to the Preservation. The museum is open year round on Saturdays from 1:00 PM through 3:00 PM. Admission is free. The museum is also open by appointment; please call 856-881-3039. Handicap accessible.
Residents and former residents have, and continue to, generously donate and loan the museum beautiful and interesting historical artifacts to display for your enjoyment and edification. The museum has artifacts from the glass industries which put "Fislerville" on the map. CHP also has numerous artifacts from our businesses, churches, schools, military veterans, the fire, police and emergency services and the varied individuals that contributed throughout the years to make Clayton the wonderful place it is today.
The Clayton Historic Preservation, INC. meets every 3rd Thursday of the month at 7:00 PM at the museum. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend these meetings. CHP appreciates the feedback received and any volunteer services are an added bonus.
