Jr. Historians

The Jr. Historians of the Somerset Historical Center are a group of youth who are excited about history and hands-on learning. Members learn to interpret exhibits and historic buildings, become familiar with traditional crafts and domestic skills, develop leadership and public speaking skills, learn about collections care and conservation, and learn how to share their knowledge with others.

The Jr. Historian Program is sponsored by the

Somerset Historical Center and the Historical and Genealogical Society of Somerset County.

For more information contact Education Coordinator, Kasey Ross.

Jr. Historians have their own booth at Mountain Craft Days
where they demonstrate butter churning, gingerbread making
and coffee roasting and grinding.


Making butter the old fashion way!
