The Community and Mr. Local History

“Out of adversity comes opportunity” is the genesis for the Mr. Local History Project. After being a non-paid volunteer for over a decade, the Mr. Local History project was born. Started by Basking Ridge resident Brooks Betz, we’re dedicated to providing all kinds of local research and stories from the area we call home. The project is excited to bring a group of locals together dedicated to “preserving and promoting local history.

The project starts with New Jersey in the Somerset Hills” with interesting articles, photos, games, contests and more. The Somerset Hills is in northern Somerset County and includes Bedminster, Bernards Twp., Bernardsville, Far Hills, Peapack, and Gladstone.

In November 2019, Mr. Local History became an officially incorporated 501c3 non-profit organization with the Federal and State government as well as the IRS. This now allows us to raise funds, accept donations, and offer tax free items to the community and build support around a key goal; creating High School scholarships for historic minded volunteers.
