On Sunday, September 9, two exhibitions of century-old photographs of the Somerset Hills opened—one at Bernardsville Public Library and the other in the Peapack-Gladstone Municipal Building. Pictured here are the volunteers of Bernardsville Library’s Local History Committee who spent many hours organizing the shows. The photos in the exhibition, taken by Fred Pitney Crater in the Somerset Hills around the turn of the 20th century, were printed from original negatives previously inaccessible to the public. They are now in the Local History collection of Bernardsville Library. The exhibits run through the month of September and can be viewed during normal business hours.
