On the Saturday and Sunday of Columbus Day Weekend, historical museums and heritage organizations throughout the county will join with the Sussex County Arts and Heritage Council for its 8th annual Heritage Weekend. It is a wonderful opportunity to explore and experience the many varied facets of history and culture in Sussex County.
While touring our county, stop at the local sites and museums, at our farms to pick pumpkins or apples, as well our farmer's marketsas or a winery. Drive the Western Highlands Scenic Byway, hike or bike our many trails, and visit our scenic parks to enjoy the splendid Fall foliage and scenery.
The historical society sites do not charge admission - but welcome donations to help support the maintenance of their site and artifacts. Some will be offering special displays, exhibits, or lectures.
