I wanted the Historical Society’s website. What happened to it?

IF you are looking for The Historical Society of the Somerset Hills website, that website was created & hosted by our parent company T3 Consortium, LLC. In late 2018, THSSH decided to go in a new direction and has a website of their own. They are now somersethillshistoricalsociety.org .
