Bridgeton looks to turn old vitamin store into museum

    Bridgeton’s old vitamin store will be a museum come Saturday and, historians hope, for good.

    The Museum of Art, Antiques and History in Bridgeton will hold an opening gala this weekend after Commerce Street location gets a good scrubbing. More than 100 people have been invited to meet the board of trustees of the nonprofit.

    The News of Cumberland County spoke with historian Bob Crowe about the effort to bring a museum to New Jersey’s fourth-oldest town and the community’s contributions to a growing collection.

    Finances are still being discussed, and grant writers are being sought to help acquire pieces.
