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.
