Join the Museum at Somerset County Courthouse Green from Oct. 8-9 for Somerset County's 17th annual Journey Through the Past weekend, where we will set up our First Oval Office Project, a recreated Revolutionary War encampment, including handsewn, full-scale replicas of General George Washington's sleeping marquee, dining tent, baggage tent, and common tents that served as his mobile headquarters while on campaign. Navigate the encampment, explore the tents, and meet costumed living history interpreters portraying the people who would have been there. Washington's original sleeping and office tent from the Revolutionary War is on permanent display at the Museum of the American Revolution in historic Philadelphia.

Somerset County’s annual Journey Through the Past is an initiative of the Somerset County Board of County Commissioners and the Somerset County Cultural & Heritage Commission in collaboration with many county-wide local historical organizations and commissions and other county organizations. The Journey Through the Past weekend will run 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 8 and 12-4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 9.
