History of the Eatontown Historical Museum

The Eatontown Historical Museum ( 75 Broad Street) was purchased by the Borough of Eatontown in 1978. The basic structure of the original one-room house is believed to be mid-18th Century English architecture. Examples of mortise and tenon frame construction using wooden pegs can be seen in the house, as well as mud and straw used for insulation. A parlor and upstairs bedrooms were added in the 19th century and a kitchen was added in the early 20th century. Tour our “Step Back in Time House Museum” and view the dining room, parlor, kitchen, and bedroom furnished with artifacts donated by Eatontown residents. Farming tools from early Eatontown farms are also on display. 

Open on the first Sunday of each month, from 1 to 4pm.
