Mr. Local History, a local non-profit organization which celebrates the history of the Somerset Hills, encourages members and volunteers of all ages to take part in local history events.
An important part of our mission, however, is to involve the youth of the area in local history. High school and college students can become MLH members and take part in the “History Makers” program, which provides opportunities for community service and college credits. History Makers assist MLH trustees with research projects such as the on-going research on Bernards Township’s Indian American & Chinese American heritage and community programs and activities such as Charter Day, Lord Stirling Day, Basking Ridge tree-lighting, and the Environmental Center’s Festival of Trees.
Each year, a deserving senior will be awarded a scholarship by MLH. Local students are encouraged to contact Mr. Local History to become a History Maker. Residents are encouraged to donate to MLH Scholarship Fund.
