Town of Trenton Historical Society

The Trenton Historical Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to the identification, collection, care, and preservation of historical documents and artifacts relating to Trenton's past, present, and future.

The society helps promote awareness and understanding of Trenton's early families, industries and traditions. Trenton Historical Society will achieve this goal by creating a safe place for preservation displays and future expansion of artifacts and by preserving existing records through accepted conservation practices. Trenton Historical Society will provide access to these resources by creating and maintaining indexes and developing educational programs to be implemented in the community and local schools.
