Fees waived for visitors at historical sites


FREEHOLD, NJ – The annual “Weekend in Old Monmouth” returns with 48 historic sites throughout Monmouth County opening their doors to visitors interested in local history on Saturday, May 6 and Sunday, May 7.


“Weekend in Old Monmouth is a wonderful event for anyone interested in our rich history and unique architecture,” said Freeholder Lillian G. Burry, liaison to the County’s Historical Commission, coordinator of the weekend event. “The sites on the tour are generally operated independently of one another, but for two days the entrance fees are waived and the hours of operation are the same at these historic gems.”


The Weekend in Monmouth tour sites will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 6 and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 7, unless otherwise noted.


The self-guided tour has recommended routes that guide history buffs travel by foot, bicycle or car to the various locations. So, start planning your route by previewing the tour sites on the County's website at www.visitmonmouth.com.


The annual Weekend in Old Monmouth tour is coordinated by the Monmouth County Historical Commission (Historical Commission). The Historical Commission is dedicated to the preservation of the County's rich historic heritage. As advocates for the preservation of historic properties, sites and projects, the Commission encourages citizens to be involved as well.


In mid-April, the 2017 detailed tour book and tour map will be available on the Monmouth County website at www.visitmonmouth.com. On the tour dates, each tour stop will also have maps and booklets available. For more information, email history@co.monmouth.nj.us.


In addition to Weekend in Old Monmouth, the Historical Commission provides matching grants for municipal and non-profit historic preservation projects, recognizes individuals and groups for efforts to preserve historic sites and resources and offers an essay contest for fifth-grade students.


The Historical Commission was established by the Board of Chosen Freeholders in 1988.
