Mt. Tabor Historical Society at The Richardson History House

32 Trinity Ave * Parsippany-Troy Hills * NJ 07878 Second Sun 12pm - 4pm | By appointment

The Mount Tabor Historical Society preserves the history of Mount Tabor, established in 1869 as one of the first Methodist summer camp meetings in New Jersey, which has evolved into a neighborhood of permanent, fanciful Victorian residences and buildings. The Mount Tabor Historic District is listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places. The Society shares their historic community as well as the Mount Tabor Camp Meeting Museum housed in the 1873 Richardson History House. Visitors are invited to travel back to another era and see what it was like to spend a summer, camp meeting style. The Society sponsors a great self-guided house tour in Mount Tabor every year in the fall. Park near the post office at 26 Simpson Ave and walk up the path to the Museum on Trinity Park.

Of Special Note:

  • Look for pieces of the original tents from the Methodist summer camp
  • Walk the hilly roads by colorful gingerbread houses, best to do so on the self-guided house tour in the fall
  • Tour the local history museum-the Richardson History House
