What is the Somerset Hills?

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.

This is what the Somerset Hills area looked like back in 1850. MLH recreated an original 1850 Somerset County map to refer to showcase the area as it was in 1850. What is now 5 townships and boroughs was once just two. Source: Mr. Local History Project

The Mr. Local History project is not affiliated with an local history organization. The MLH effort is a self-funded non-profit organization built socially promote and preserve local history in the Somerset Hills, a section of Northern Somerset County New Jersey.
