  • 2008 - On November 9, 2008 the The Brick Academy top floor restoration is formally dedicated with a reception to personally thank the Bernards Twp Township Committee, Township Officials, County Freeholders, County Officials, Cultural and Heritage Commissioners, Contractors, Consultants, THSSH members and the general public who generously supported this long-term Historical Society project.

  • 1969 - The descendents of Grant Schley sold Schley Mountain for $2.2 million for development of what is now known as The Hills Development of Bedminster and Bernards Township.

This group, in turn, auctioned off huge parcels to major home builders like K. Hovnanian, Pulte Homes and Toll Brothers.
