Tabernacle Historical Society

In February of 1975 a group of ten local residents met to discuss their desire to establish a local historical society. Although incorporated in 1901, Tabernacle history easily dates to earlier than 1778. It was about this year that John Brainard established a small church at the intersection of today’s Carranza and Medford Lakes Roads. It was know as the “Tabernacle in the Woods.”

By the time of incorporation in 1901 much history had gone unrecorded. In order to protect, preserve, promote and publish the tales and truths of our history, the Tabernacle Historical Society was established.
