Weekend Journey Through the Past

Step back into the past and discover something AMAZING! Somerset County’s 11th Annual Weekend Journey Through The Past will take place from 10am-5pm on Saturday, October 8th and Sunday, October 9th at various historic sites throughout Somerset County.

Experience the sights and sounds of the 18th & 19th centuries with costumed re-enactors, house tours, open-hearth cooking, interactive activities, blacksmithing, period music performances and so much more!

Looking for a challenge? Join in on “What in the World is That?”, a fun and educational detective game for the entire family. One unique item from the past will be featured, displayed and identified, along with its description at each site.  Visitors will work to reveal the true identity and function of each mystery item ahead of time.

While driving to each destination, visitors may follow a scenic route, with driving directions prepared for each of three sections in the County—northern, central, and southern—or choose the sites that intrigue you most and enjoy them at your own pace.

No matter which sites you decide to explore, your're sure to experience Somerset County's rich history with this engaging event.
