The Hunterdon 300th Proudly Announces Our History and Heritage Theme for 2018: WATER, WATER, EVERYWHERE! Join us for a year of exploring the many facets of how water has affected Hunterdon's history -- from the migration of the Europeans using the Delaware and Raritan Rivers, to the Great Flood of '55, to Lenape encampments along the rivers, to our historic mills and ferries, the importance of the D&R Canal, the history of the reservoirs and so much more. A year of fun events, trips and talks.

2014 was a wonderful year celebrating Hunterdon County's 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.

Our 2017 Lectures and Events have 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.

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