As part of our mission to share Newark's history, the Newark Historical Society participates in various community events throughout the year. In addition, we are  proud to sponsor special educational events for our members and local history buffs.  Our two signature events are the Founders' Day Celebration and the Annual Membership Meeting.

Upcoming Events

Second Annual Founders Day 5K
Saturday, April 6, 2024
9:00am - 11:00am

Support the renovation of the historic Newark Train Station by joining us on April 6th for the 2nd Annual Founders Day 5k. Newark History Museum celebrates Founders Day on the first Sunday in April (or close to it) to honor the signers of the original Newark Charter in 1758. Benefitting the Newark Historical Society, the Train Station will serve as the turnaround point for the course.

Don't miss the afterparty at the Buffalo Wild Wings!
