Message From The President

Dear Friends,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our website as President and CEO of The New Jersey Historical Society

As you know, The New Jersey Historical Society is the oldest cultural institution in the state and New Jersey’s only statewide historical society. It has played a vital role in shaping the culture of our state over the past 165 years and I look forward to leading a team effort to interpret and communicate the wonderful richness of New Jersey. I will be ever vigilant in focusing our efforts to be continually relevant to New Jersey contemporary life while highlighting past accomplishments that tell the magnificent history of our state.

Please feel free to visit our wonderful historic facility in Newark. I look forward to the opportunity to personally great and welcome you to the Historical Society. My door is open to you as you visit, whether for the first time or on a return trip to see our most recent exhibits.

You might also want to make a point of attending the many programs we have scheduled for various locations throughout the State. I would love to see you and talk to you about the many exciting plans we have for the future.

In addition, you may contact me at lepps@jerseyhistory.org. It would be a pleasure to hear from you. A true assessment of our many New Jersey communities would not be complete without hearing from our loyal friends and longtime members.

Let me express my thanks to all of you for your demonstrated confidence in The New Jersey Historical Society through the years. Good times and bad, triumphs and tragedies, financial crunches and great prosperity are all part of New Jersey history. Our past is part of our teaching. Our present is what we celebrate. Our future is what we are building with every exhibit, every event, and every program we offer to resident of our State. It is my intention to continue the level of excellence we have achieved in our exhibitions and programs, to propel our capacity to serve an even broader audience, and to increase our fundraising ability so that we might increase our services and provide a reserve that will insure our future for another 165 years.

Once again, let me express my thanks to all of you for your continued support and friendship.

Sincerely yours,

Steve Tettamanti
Acting Executive Director
