Middlebrook Five Generals Bus Tour

The Heritage Trail Association will offer a more luxurious way to tour and listen to the tour guides while visiting these 5 historically important homes in Somerset County.

Each tour runs 2.5 hours with 20 minutes at each site and valuable narration between locations. Beginning at 10am, tours run ON the hour with the last tour starting at 3pm. Tours begin at the Van Horne House. Gather your friends for a group tour.

During the winter of 1778-79, George Washington and his top generals rented local houses to live and work with their particular men around them. This lessened the load on the local population and kept the local people happy. Beginning at the Van Horne House--HQ of The Heritage Trail Association--we will check in and enjoy our short program. Then, stepping into the bus and heading off to the Abraham Staats house, The Jacobus Vanderveer House, The Wallace House and the Van Veghten House! Docents at each house will conduct the tours inside.

Selling out the past few years, we are happy to bring this important piece of our local history to you! This tour is but a taste of the area and houses still open to the public. Feel free to donate to each house on the tour and go back and visit them at your leisure!

This year we will be using premium coaches comfortable seats and the tour sound system called VOX will add to our listening and gathering experiences. The VOX system is an individual receiver with earphones that allow our guests to hear every important word on the way to and inside the houses!

All funds from this tour will provide the comfort buses and individual sound system. Each guest will receive a brochure of the houses along with a bottle of water.

Parking in our lot for handicapped only please. All others park behind Target located at 200 Promenade Way, Bridgewater, NJ 08807.
