An Interview with archaeologist and curator Jeffrey Norcross

Jeffrey Norcross is founder and curator of The South Jersey Museum of American History, located right here in Glassboro. Norcross is an archaeologist with a brimming passion for the artifacts that make up his museum. Many of the antique farming tools on display come directly from Norcross’s family, which have called South Jersey home for many generations. The Museum also sports collections of Native artifacts, antique firearms, political memorabilia, century-old glass bottles that recall Glassboro’s manufacturing history and much more. The Museum’s fascinating items are surely not its only draw. A personal tour from Norcross is filled with in-depth knowledge, humor and genuine pleasure in revealing his life-long passion through the items he has collected.
