2018 Event Overview...
The Somerset County Cultural & Heritage Commission, in collaboration with up to 30 local historical organizations and tourism partners, has designated the weekend of October 13 & 14, 2018 "Weekend Journey through the Past." During this two-day period, up to 30 of the County's significant historic sites will be open from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Saturday and 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM on Sunday.
Participating historic sites will be grouped into three convenient tours by location: Northern, Central, and Southern Somerset County.
This annual event is a perfect opportunity for a family outing. A visit to the County's historic sites offers a unique educational experience for all ages, as well as a chance to visit some of Somerset County's most picturesque and unspoiled areas.
Many of the sites have significant Revolutionary War histories which have contributed to the area's designation as the "Crossroads of the American Revolution State Heritage Area". Local historians will be on hand to share their knowledge and stories about Somerset County's history.
Remember to check back late summer for more information about the 2018 Weekend Journey!
