Our library contains more than 1,300 bound volumes with an emphasis on Somerset County History & Genealogy, New Jersey State History and the American Revolution. We also hold the Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey and the Proceedings of the New Jersey Historical Society (partial run).
We have a number of books and pamphlets, both hardcover and paperback available for purchase . Topics tend to be related to Somerset County and vicinity. We are most proud of The Eagle's Nest, a master's thesis by Carl Prince, now a renowned historian, first published in the late 1950's. It is the first publication about the second Middlebrook Encampment in Somerset during the American Revolution.
A full list of titles and prices will be posted here shortly. Until then, email us for details.
Funding for the Somerset County Historical Society is provided, in part,
by the New Jersey Historical Commission, a division of the Department of State
through the State/County History Partnership Program Grant and administered
by the Somerset County Cultural and Heritage Commission.
