The Mauricetown Historical Society was created to preserve and perpetuate the unique quality of life and the colorful history of the villages of Mauricetown, Port Norris, Haleyville, Buckshutem and the areas of Commercial Township (NJ) that border the Maurice River as it winds its way to the Delaware Bay. Prior to the official formation of this group they worked as a local committee to have thirty-six architecturally significant homes and structures in the area added to the Cumberland County (NJ) Register of Historic Structures and Sites.
