Your Source for Local History & Family Heritage in Somerset County
The Society of the Sons of the Revolution in the State of New Jersey (SRNJ) has generously donated $1,000.00 to the Somerset County Historical Society. This donation will allow us to have eight 18th century manuscripts assessed for conservation at the Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts in Philadelphia. Special thanks go to Dr. Robert Olson of SRNJ who visited Van Veghten House in July and recommended the donation for our archival program. Much appreciation is also due Michael Alfano, SCHS trustee (and SRNJ member) who solicited the funds from SRNJ.
Many thanks to Carol Levin for her Ann Baumgartner Carl reenactment presentation at our Spring Meeting. Carl learned to fly in our county and while serving as a Women's Airforce Service Pilot during WWII, became a test pilot at Ohio's Wright Field, and the first American woman to pilot a jet aircraft.
