Press Release: It’s a Love Story—Taylor Swift and Stone Harbor!
STONE HARBOR, NJ – June 13, 2024 – The Stone Harbor Museum is thrilled to debut their 2024 Taylor Swift collection at the Stone Harbor Museum.

Items include photos of Swift as a child vacationing in Stone Harbor (provided by her family), four Midnights vinyls which, put together, create a clock display, a Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour concert film poster, a Taylor Swift-inspired Peter Max poster, and a Midnights-themed guitar autographed by Taylor.

“Our Museum is thrilled to have these items,” said Teri Fischer, President of the Board of Trustees for the Stone Harbor Museum. “It’s not just about the items, it’s about the fact that her family wanted us to have personal family photos from some time ago that were taken while they were staying in Stone Harbor.

Taylor Swift spent her summers with her family in Stone Harbor from 1992 to 2004 and actually sang at Coffee Talk, which is still standing, and Henny’s which is gone but not forgotten. Her father Scott Swift had close ties with Stone Harbor and was an EMT with the Stone Harbor Volunteer Fire Company No. 1.

“We hope that the 2024 Taylor Swift collection at the Stone Harbor Museum will now bring new and old visitors into the Museum where they will not only enjoy seeing these wonderful items, but that they will learn about other Stone Harbor history as well,” said Fischer. “Our mission is to acquire, preserve, display, celebrate and promote archival and artifactual items relevant to the development of our unique cultural heritage and to delight, inspire and educate the present and future generations about the story of Stone Harbor, NJ. Taylor Swift is definitely part of the Stone Harbor story, and I know that she does delight and inspire so many of us.”
