Volunteer Community Service Opportunities
THSSH is a great place to get your 25 hour high school volunteer community service hours. And you can do it all in one place for one organization and keep it simple. Whether it's genealogy, American history, or architectural history, we'll continue to expand our collection of materials suitable for students of all ages. Below are a few of the offerings:

THSSH Young Historians
Since the home to the Historical Society of the Somerset Hills is a former school, it's only appropriate that there's a fun interactive learning experience for our areas youth. The 1809 Federal-style Brick Academy located in the center of Basking Ridge has been a boys’ private preparatory school, a public school, a meeting hall for several fraternal and benevolent organizations, and the Bernards Township municipal building. It currently serves as the headquarters of The Historical Society of the Somerset Hills.
Programs Run By Students
While THSSH continues to expand the program, we are always looking for young historians that not only want to learn about history, but to actually run a young minded program. There have been walking tours, speaker series, and educational events designed, planned, and executed by our THSSH Student members. To get involved, simply drop us a note and someone from the Program Committee will be in touch.
