The organization was founded on Nov. 19, 1969, under the leadership of Evelyn Harrod and Stanley Lehrer. The group was named the official historical society of Englishtown.
Dorothy McCue, a trustee of the historical society, said the highlight of the group's history has to be saving the Village Inn, which sits at the corner of Main and Water streets in Englishtown.
"When Manalapan Township put the Village Inn up for sale, rumor had it that the site would become a gas station. We were able to save and refurbish the inn, and the members of the Battleground Historical Society take a lot of pride in being its caretakers and proprietors," she said.
The Battleground Historical Society depends on your contributions to maintain The Village Inn Building and it's operating expenses.
