 Somerset County’s annual Weekend Journey Through The Past is an initiative of the Somerset County Cultural & Heritage Commission, a division of Somerset County government, in collaboration with many county-wide local historical organizations/commissions and other county organizations.

Funding has been made possible, in part, by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Dept. of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, through the State/County Partnership Local Arts Program Grant / Arts in Non-Traditional Venues. Funding helped defray the cost of some arts programming, and artists whose involvement contributed to and enhanced arts activities to complement this annual collaborative heritage tourism event.
