In 2001, a small group of dedicated Clementon citizens formed the Clementon Historical Commission. Inspired by former town historian and devoted historical hobbyist John H. Fisher, Jr., the group endeavored to make Fisher’s long-held dream – a place to house and display Clementon history – a reality.
In 2005, the John. H. Fisher, Jr. Historical Museum opened its doors in the onetime council chambers of Clementon’s former borough hall at the intersection of Gibbsboro and White Horse Roads. Fisher wouldn’t live to see his dream come to fruition; however, his careful organization continues to serve as the cornerstone of the Museum’s collection. In Fisher’s spirit, the Commission collects historical documents and memorabilia lent and donated by residents present and past, making them available for the enjoyment and education of all visitors.
The John H. Fisher, Jr. Historical Museum is housed in the same building as the Clementon Memorial Library:
195 Gibbsboro Rd.
Clementon, NJ 08021
Due to COVID restrictions, the Museum is currently open on Wednesdays by appointment only.
