  Logo for WJTP

We look forward to welcoming you to Somerset County’s 13th annual Weekend Journey Through the Past, a perfect opportunity to take your family on a weekend outing to visit and immerse yourself in the distant past. We invite you to satisfy your curiosity and expand your knowledge through the discovery of many fascinating aspects and oral histories surrounding the thirty (30) significant historic sites open, free of charge, for touring all weekend long. You’ll learn much about their former occupants, some among whom were quite distinguished statesmen and national leaders; how they occupied their day to day lives, from daily work responsibilities and pleasurable pastimes to the difficult hardships endured during the American Revolution. As you journey from site to site you will discover that many have significant Revolutionary War histories, contributing to the area’s designation as the “Crossroads of the American Revolution State Heritage Area.” By the end of your journey, you will have a greater appreciation of the history of Somerset County and the lives of early settlers – who they were, where they came from, how they lived, and how they made a difference in the lives of their neighbors, in the growth and development of our county, and their contributions to the rich heritage and development of our great nation.
All participating sites are open free of charge for visitors on Saturday, October 14 from 10 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and again on Sunday, October 15 from Noon to 4:00 p.m
Dana Bala with Her Quilt Exhibit
Special activities at the Abraham Staats House include Dana Bala’s presentation of “American Quilting & Sewing Arts” discussing quilts, fabrics, clothing and two early Staats family samplers, guided house tours by interpreters in period clothing, live period music performed by Thomas Harabin, and exhibits on the Middlebrook Cantonment and 18th century life.
