Join us at BHS!

 What do you get when you volunteer for the BHS?  It is something as fragile as it is powerful, much  like a postcard from the turn of the century filled with forgotten information.  It is  the opportunity to learn the history of your community, to find ways to preserve it, and then share that knowledge with others. Those are very important goals.  We all need to give back, to be of value, to find a purpose for ourselves and a way to belong to our community.

Membership in the BHS is not what you get, but what you can give.

The BHS volunteers are doing great work as a constant reminder to the community that we are moving forward despite the loss of our museum during the storm. We have kept the historical documents safe and ready for display.  Our message is of endurance, much as Belmar has endured, and the need to learn from the past to prepare for the future.  That is what we offer members:  a future that is built on a strong foundation. Our volunteers believe that is what is truly in the hearts of many.  Come join us today. For further information  send an email to
