As the original part of the museum dates back to 1827 with a large addition from 1847, the Society showcases what life was like in Brick Township in the mid-1800’s. By visiting the Havens Homestead and the other buildings on the property, such as the Lizzie Herbert House, the barn, the cranberry shed and the fishing shack, one can learn how ordinary citizens lived, relying on hard work and making do with what they had.
