‘A Weekend in Old Monmouth’ historic tour returns for 2022

49 historic Monmouth County sites open April 30 & May 1

The Monmouth County Historical Commission is pleased to announce the return of ‘A Weekend in Old Monmouth,’ with 49 historic sites throughout Monmouth County, on Saturday, April 30 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday, May 1 from 12 to 5 p.m.

“We are excited about the return of ‘A Weekend in Old Monmouth’ historic tour, after a hiatus due to the pandemic,” said Commissioner Lillian G. Burry, liaison to the Monmouth County Historical Commission. “The tour is organized into four segments and will feature local organizations’ museums and historic buildings, which will provide a glimpse of Monmouth County’s extensive history. All fees will be waived at the participating sites during the weekend.”

The sites on the tour are generally operated independently. The self-guided tour allows for easy access and various transportation routes between the sites. To start planning your route, preview the tour sites on the County’s website at

A published tour guide that includes all participating site locations and map, programing and contact information will be available at any historic site on the tour or by downloading the guide at

The Historical Commission is also offering a virtual tour that will present all 49 historic sites in an interactive format which will include information, photos, and a map of the tour guide. Each tour site is now a “story point” on an interactive map using state-of-the-art technology.

The annual Weekend in Old Monmouth tour is coordinated by the Monmouth County Historical Commission. The Historical Commission, which was established by the Board of Chosen Freeholders in 1988, is dedicated to the preservation of the County’s rich historic heritage. As advocates for the preservation of historic properties, sites and projects, the Commission encourages residents to be involved as well.
