Hunterdon County Celebrates 300 Years in 2014

2014 was a wonderful year celebrating our 300th Year - thank you so much for the overwhelming participation in the many events that took place. We hope you had an enjoyable time. A huge thank you to our incredible sponsors, volunteers and committee members for all of your support.

We had such a huge success in 2014 we have decided to continue our efforts to bring these programs to you for as long as we can. For 2015 Our Hunterdon History and Heritage theme is HUNTERDON'S AGRICULTURAL HERITAGE - join us as we celebrate. We hope to see you at one of our great events. Municipalities and other special partners are also invited to add their heritage events to our calendar - so please take a look to see what they will be offering as well.
