The Historical Society Museum is located on the second floor of the Spring Lake Municipal Building,
423 Warren Avenue, on the southeast corner of Fifth Avenue. The building was originally erected in 1897
as the town’s first public school and served in the 1950’s as a Masonic Lodge. The Museum has an
intimate, jewel-like quality. Its ornamental interior, rich with architectural detail, now plays
host to the collections that form the heart of the Society’s historical treasures.
