The Mount Tabor Historical Society is a 501c3 nonprofit organization whose purpose is to preserve and restore the Victorian heritage of Mount Tabor, NJ, to increase community awareness and participation in planning for the future, in harmony with its past. Formed in 1990, the all-volunteer organization is active in the community hosting educational activities, speakers, and programs for the public. The MTHS is a proud steward of the Richardson History House, a camp meeting cottage museum that is open to the public on the second Sunday of every month from 12 to 4 pm and also by appointment. Funding for the restoration of the Richardson History House has been received from the Morris County Historic Preservation Fund, an operating expenses grant has been provided by the Morris County Heritage Commission, and proceeds from MTHS fundraisers such as our annual historic house tour and many individual donors.

Mount Tabor was founded in 1869 as a Methodist camp meeting ground – the site where a camp meeting was held for ten days each summer and evolved to become a summer resort community. Eventually, the summer tents and cottages became year-round houses, still within the dimensions of the original 25-foot-by-16-foot tent lots. The close proximity and tiny lots created an environment that fostered the diminutive gingerbread cottages so prominent in camp meeting communities.

Today, Mount Tabor is a year-round neighborhood within Parsippany-Troy Hills Township and still enjoys the strong sense of community its original founders intended. It has a historic heritage that is being proudly preserved.

Mount Tabor was listed on the New Jersey State Register of Historic Places in January 2015 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in March 2015.
