- Collect materials relevant to the history of the Caldwells and the “Horseneck” area of Essex County to be used for research, education, and exhibition.
- Actively solicit relevant contributions to the local history room.
- Organize, preserve, and maintain materials for maximum accessibility.
Materials in the local history collection, including microfilms are available by appointment.
