The Mr. Local History Historic Marker Scavenger Hunt

It’s time to grab your smartphone and head outdoors for a new adventure for history buffs. The Mr. Local History Project has been traveling all over northern Somerset County trying to locate some of the most obvious and obscure historic markers in the area.

Each marker discusses a historic moment from our areas past. The fun part is we’re making it a challenge. We’ve identified 31 signs in the Somerset Hills towns of Bedminster, Bernards, Bernardsville, and Peapack. Question is, can you find them?

Three Legs

We’ve broken down the markers into three logical legs to make it easier. Just keep track of where you find the plaque as well. We’ll have bonus questions later in the game. Good Luck and happy hunting.

Bedminster – Peapack Leg #1
Bernards Township Leg #2
Bernards Twp = Bernardsville Leg #3

  1. I just found a postcard that is postmarked May 27,1907. It came from a man who I think may have stayed there. Just finding out some of the history. The man’s name on the postcard is Lionel Kristeller, Washington House, Basking Ridge NJ. I’d love to know more of the history of this place. Thanks, Deb
