We’re all about Joisey History!
The Mr. Local History Project is a 501c3 all volunteer non-profit public charity bringing locals together by “promoting local history with a social twist.” The project started in northern Somerset County, New Jersey and now works across the Garden State finding new ways to engage with local communities, organizations and passionate people with great stories to share. Volunteers are always welcome.
100% Local Fundraising
The Mr Local History Project is now the exclusive seller of the Somerset Hills Historic Cat’s Meow Village, a partnership with the globally known wooden collectibles company Cat’s Meow . EVERY PENNY we raise from these collectibles goes back into the funding for the next collectible and other projects (like our coloring book and oak tree book). Please consider supporting by becoming a resident of this great historic village.
“Out of adversity comes opportunity” is the genesis for the Mr. Local History Project. After being a non-paid volunteer for over a decade, the Mr. Local History project was born. Started by Basking Ridge resident Brooks Betz, the Mr. Local History Project is dedicated to providing all kinds of local research and stories from the area we call home.
