The Chatham Historical Society received a grant administered by the Morris County Heritage Commission for the Morris County Board of Chosen Freeholders. The grant was funded by the New Jersey Historical Commission, a division of the Department of State, allowing us to purchase a cabinet that is "environmentally safe," secure, and provides proper archival storage for our files and photos.
