2019 Membership Application

If you love history and learning about the place where you live, consider becoming a member of the Somerset County Historical Society.   Stop by the Van Veghten House to join the society and see our historical treasure. Remember, hidden away on a dead-end, we're the best kept secret in Somerset County. Finding us is half the adventure!

This coming year we hope to keep up the efforts begun in 2018 AND increase participation in local festivals, conduct a workshop that participants will pay for, begin removing or mitigating physical barriers identified in our ADA walkthrough, grow membership another 3 %, open the house to other organizations for meetings, collect enough to meet the match needed to qualify for an operating grant, and partner with other county historical groups when possible.  Join!  Renew your membership, if you haven' t already  (This year we’re holding the line on the amount of the dues.)  Membership includes 4 newsletters a year, a lively email communication fairly regularly, an attractive web page at www.Somersethistorynj.org, free History Talk programs, access to site on open days and upon request, fun social gatherings and the satisfaction of helping to discover, procure and preserve Somerset County, NJ’s  unique history and legacy.

Annual membership is $20.00 and includes an email copy  of our quarterly newsletter.  To receive a print copy of the newsletter and to cover the expense of printing and mailing, please add $4.00 to your membership payment for a total of $24.00.  If you'd add a donation, we'd be most grateful.
