Remembering
Somerville

In 1909, Somerville formally separated from Bridgewater Township and established itself as an independence borough. The event was celebrated with music and fireworks. Starting more than a century before, the area had gradually developed from a sleepy backwater crossroads to a thriving county seat, a center of commerce, and fashionable residential community.

Jessie Havens' weekly newspaper column "Hindsight," which was published over a twenty-five year period, provides a interesting prospective on how Somerville became the town that it is today. Remembering Somerville is a collection of Jessie's vignettes covering the people, places, and events that make up the history of Somerville.
