In 1860, a small group of Mount Holly residents formed the Burlington County Lyceum of History and Natural Sciences, to study local history and science. In August of 2013, the County of Burlington purchased the historic Langstaff Mansion, the previous home of the Mount Holly Library, with the intention of turning the building into the first general history museum in the county.
To support the efforts of the Burlington County Lyceum in preserving, displaying, and making accessible to the public the historical heritage of Burlington County with collections, exhibits, and programs related to history and science, and to support the restoration and preservation of the Langstaff Mansion.
Due to COVID-19 all upcoming programs have been cancelled through May 15 and the Lyceum will be closed for the immediate future. We will continue to update as changes occur. Thank you for your continued understanding.
In time for women’s history month, a calendar celebrating the 100th anniversary of the women’s right to vote. Each page presents a prominent historical Burlington County woman. The calendars are $10 & available at the Lyceum’s gift shop. Proceeds benefit the Lyceum Association’s 3rd Saturday programming.
