The Jordan Historical Museum of the Twenty Volunteer Association
Volunteers, just like you, are key to the continuing success of the Volunteer Association. Your interest in volunteering; be it once a year with Pioneer Day or once or twice a month guiding guests through the Heritage House or working at the Heritage Gift Shop in Jordan, becomes the strength of the Volunteer Association.
Granted “Letters Patent” in 1953, volunteers like you established the Jordan Historical Museum of the Twenty on the grounds of the old Jordan Schoolhouse. Additional artifact displays were created in Jordan’s Isaac Wismer/Anna High red brick home, now part of the Inn on the Twenty. Before the decade was over, plans were underway for volunteers to relocate and restore the original Jacob Fry/Elizabeth Wismer home from Victoria Avenue and Fly Road in Vineland to its’ present location on the Jordan Historical Museum grounds.
The Volunteer Association operated the Museum for 42 years until the mid 1990’s when economics threatened the loss of the artifact collection to the community and closure of the Museum. Fortunately, the Museum and its artifacts were rescued by the Town of Lincoln who assumed ownership and operation.
The purpose of the Jordan Historical Museum of the Twenty Volunteer Association remains to work in partnership with the Town of Lincoln to increase awareness of our historical background by supporting the Museum’s protection, preservation and display of the Jordan Historical Museum’s artifact collection.
