The NJ State Historical Committee,  


 Hey, did you ever wish you had a “Time Machine” so you could visit the past. Unfortunately, it hasn’t been invented, but you can visit the history of Elkdom by taking a trip to New Brunswick Lodge #324. The dedication of the New Jersey State Elks Historical Home was held on Sunday, March 18.

State President Robert Jani had the honor of cutting the ceremonial ribbon.

Some of the Past State Presidents and Elks from throughout the state were the first to visit our history. New Brunswick Lodge #324 which is 112 years old is located in the theater district at 40 Livingston Avenue. It is a short walk from the Hyatt Hotel where we hold our Annual Fall Conference.

     Displayed in the showcases is Elk memorabilia dating back to over hundred years ago. The artifacts will be rotated every three months. If you have any historical items form your Lodge you would like displayed contact one of our committee members. All items will be returned. Please stop by when you are in town bring your family and friends to see our home and all that New Brunswick has to offer.  I would like to thank New Brunswick Lodge #324 and the Historical Committee members for making our “Historical Home” a reality.

     At our Wildwood Reunion in June we will be honoring our NJ Elks Past State Presidents. Come visit our display in the convention center on Thursday and Friday during the Wildwood Reunion. Elk refrigerator magnets (replicas of the turn of the century Elk postcards), “Wandering Elk” shirts 

(a favorite of the ladies), and the Limited Breyer-"North American Elk" will be for sale at the booth to raise funds for our committee.
