In 1905, at the same time plans were being made to erect a monument to commemorate the Tea Burning in Greenwich, the Cumberland County Historical Society was organized as a non-profit corporation. The first recorded meeting of the incorporators of the Cumberland County Historical Society was held in the old Cumberland County Court House on Broad Street in Bridgeton at 2 PM on December 2, 1908.

These Charter Members organized the Society in order to apply to the Board of Freeholders and the State Legislature for funds to erect a monument inGreenwich to the memory of the brave Patriots who burned the tea on December 22, 1774.
