About Us

The MCHA Research Library & Archives is a significant resource for historians, genealogists, scholars, and anyone with an interest in the storied history of Monmouth County, one of New Jersey’s earliest permanent settlements. The Association houses one of the largest collections of local published and unpublished materials in the state, including more than 1,000 manuscript collections. The breadth and depth of these collections offer regional insights into the broad themes of United States history, while documenting more than three centuries of daily life in Monmouth County.
