Historic Somerset Hills: The Country Place Era

The Maples 
The "Somerset Hills Country Place Era" is a recent thematic type of historic register designation approved by the NJ State Historic Preservation Office in 2013.  It makes it possible for historic estate properties and structures built in the Bernardsville area between 1870 and 1940 to be listed on the NJ Register of Historic Places if desired by the current owners. On Thursday, May 8 at 7:00 pm, Bernardsville’s Historic Preservation Advisory Committee (HPAC) will explain this listing and what possible historic designation means for your property.  Preservation professionals will be on hand to answer your questions and explain the benefits of listing in a historic district. 

Founded in 2002, Bernardsville's Historic Preservation Advisory Committee is dedicated to the promotion of historic preservation in the borough through planning, outreach, conservation, education, public programs and events.

There is no charge to attend the program, but advance sign-up is requested.  Register online at and follow the link from Adult Programs, or call the library at 908-766-0118 to sign up.
