Heritage Trail Association offers a variety of educational and innovative programming such as: bus & walking tours, lectures, symposia, re-enactments, outreach to underserved populations within the County, and special exhibits at our headquarters, the historic Van Horne House.
We also offer schools, clubs and organizations the opportunity to arrange customized historic tours. Schools or organizations can choose a geographic area in Somerset County, or a specific theme (e.g., "Heroines and Celebrities", "Visions and Inventions", "Landed Gentry", etc.). To find out more, please contact us at (732) 356-8856.
For those unable to participate in the Heritage Trail Association's bus tours, we are introducing a 4th edition version of our Self-Driving Tour booklet this year: Discovering Somerset County: 70 Miles of Legend and Lore. This self-driving tour booklet will be available for $19.95. The self-driving tour can be driven in segments at your own pace taking as little as 1/2 hour at a time, or enjoying a full day of history.
