Burlington County Lyceum of History & Natural Sciences Association

About Us

Our history

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. 

Our mission

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 restorations and preservation of the Langstaff Mansion.
