After NEVER having a Wikipedia page, the Mr. Local History Project said “enough is enough” and we created one. Now the world can know what “the Somerset Hills” is all about. As part of our “inner circle” join us as we grow the local history community of the Somerset Hills. The MLH Project just loaded the first Wikipedia overview of the Somerset Hills.

Congratulations to Mr. Local History Project Trustee Brooks Betz for his re-appointment as the official Bernards Township Historian.

The Mr. Local History project is not affiliated with any specific local history organization. The MLH effort is a self-funded non-profit organization built to promote and preserve local history with a social twist in the Somerset Hills, a northern section of Somerset County, New Jersey.
