 Show your civic pride – get your Montgomery flag

Montgomery Township proudly flies the official Montgomery flag at Veterans Memorial Park.   A 2.5 x 4 foot “ home” size version of the flag is now available to the citizenry of the Township.   The Van Harlingen Historical Society is selling a limited quantity of flags, made in the USA, for $40.

To order, contact info@vanharlingen.org for more information.   A 2” x 4” stick flag is also available for $5.


The Gulick House library, located at 506 Route 601 in Belle Mead, is opened the last Saturday of the month from 10 – 12. Drop by for a visit.  We’re having a pop-up book sale and you can obtain gently used local history books for ½ price.

The Van Harlingen Historical Society

was founded in 1965 to help preserve the heritage of the Montgomery Township area and to interpret the area’s history through educational programs, publications, and exhibits.   VHHS believes that by educating people about our rich history, we create a stronger sense of community.
