The Vineland Historical and Antiquarian Society is the oldest local historical society in New Jersey. Its goal is to collect and preserve artifacts and records related to Vineland, New Jersey, the South Jersey region, and American history. The society's museum opened to the public in 1910. It features permanent exhibits of antique furnishings, paintings, military artifacts, broadsides, and musical instruments. There are rooms dedicated to the Civil War, the history of local native cultures, and local glass making. The Charles K. Landis room features many furnishings that once belonged to the town founder. It also includes an extensive collection of local newspapers and South Jersey census records on microfilm/microfiche, as well as a library of general history and biographical works in excess of 6000 books and magazines.
