EVENTS FUNDRAISERS VOLUNTEER PRESS PHOTOS CONTACT US

2014 was a wonderful year celebrating our 300TH BIRTHDAY. We had such a huge success in 2014 we decided to continue our efforts to bring these programs to you for as long as we can.

In 2015 our Hunterdon History and Heritage theme was HUNTERDON'S AGRICULTURAL HERITAGE.

2016 we celebrated Hunterdon's Heritage and THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR IN HUNTERDON.

We have started planning our 2017 Lectures and Events with the theme of  HUNTERDON AT WAR:  THE HOME FRONT FROM THE FRENCH-INDIAN WAR TO THE WAR ON TERRORISM.

Municipalities and other special partners have been invited to add their heritage events to our calendar.

A huge thank you to our incredible sponsors, volunteers and committee members for all of your support.

If you have any questions please email 300info@co.hunterdon.nj.us or call us at 908-788-2030.
