Join us on the Heritage Trail and discover what you haven’t seen before!

Over 300 years of sacrifices, challenges and pivotal moments have transpired right in our own backyard. Our goal is to offer area residents and visitors alike an opportunity to learn about the rich history of greater Somerset County while celebrating our unique place in our nation's history. The Heritage Trail Association helps to connect the past to the present day.

We do this by offering a series of programs such as lectures, exhibits and programs. In addition, the Van Horne house is available for rent to the public and businesses for special events such as weddings, parties and meetings. Click here for more information on renting the Van Horne House for your special occasion!

We started in 1993 with a two-hour bus tour called 60 Miles of Legend and Lore and over the years, developed many original bus and walking tours, such as Somerset Hills Landed Gentry, Nostalgia & Post World War II Housing, Famous Lovers & Murders, Visions and Inventions and more.

In 2002, the Heritage Trail Association moved its headquarters location to the historic Van Horne House. Built in the 1750's, the Van Horne Home has seen the footpaths of the Native Americans, the development of early colonial settlements, the struggles of the American Revolution and the rise of commerce and industry, making it a true window though which to view Somerset County’s history..
