The Red Schoolhouse Museum serves as the museum of the Waretown Historical Society, which was formed in February 1968. Its name is derived from the fact that the building is a replica of the old Red Schoolhouse used in the earlier times, particularly in the 1800?s up to 1958. The original building was torn down to accommodate a First Aid Squad.

The Society, which underwent a long period of hiatus, re-formed in 1997. From that time on, it has assumed an active role in the life and continuity of the community. It operates the Waretown Library which allows visitors to access regular slide and lecture programs pertaining or related to genealogical and historical topics. The society is also in charge of offering organized tours of the sites throughout the state of New Jersey.

Basically, the society works toward the preservation of historical and genealogical information for future generations. The society also works for the restoration and preservation of older buildings, antiques and artifacts. Through these exhibits, tours, lectures, and other programs, the society is able to promote the appreciation for the rich history of Waretown
