Historical Organization of the Week: Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs

Every Monday, I highlight a non-profit related to history or the arts, a historical society, preservation group or friends group whose main objective is to promote the historical and artistic history of New Jersey. 

This week, I am featuring the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs. The Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs promotes and develops public interest and participation in the arts and local, county and state history, and ensures that all residents have the opportunity to share in and benefits from the rich multi-cultural arts, history and historic resources in Union County. The office's activities enhance the quality of life, economic development, community revitalization, growth of cultural-heritage tourism and enhanced educational experiences for residents of all ages.

The office sponsors Four Centuries in a Weekend each October. Since 1994, twenty-four historic sites across the county, spanning four centuries, open their doors to visitors in one weekend. The Deserted Village of Feltville/Glenside Park in Berkeley Heights is also administered by the County.

For information and listings of events sponsored by  the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs, please visit http://ucnj.org/community/community-renewal/cultural-and-heritage-affairs or call 908-558-2550.
