Our Beginning
In 1996, the Mayor and Council of Stone Harbor created by Resolution the Stone Harbor Archival Advisory Committee.The purpose of the committee was to "advise and assist the borough in the acquisition, preservation and protection of writings, pictures, publications, artifacts and other memorabilia relating to the development and growth of the Borough of Stone Harbor." The Stone Harbor Museum Corp. was certified as a 501c3 nonprofit organization in 2000.
Shortly thereafter, an older home, which had been used by the Stone Harbor Elementary School for School Board offices became available. Through an arrangement between the Borough and the School,Board this building became the Museum.
Our Future

 We have just obtained a 2,400 sq ft property at 9410 Second Ave for our new location! Our Museum had outgrown our present facility (900 sq ft) and had been seeking an appropriate larger facility to display our 50,000 artifacts, videos and displays. We anticipate opening this spring after we complete some interior work.
