A Weekend in Old Monmouth

Dr. Cooke's Medical Office

A Weekend in Old Monmouth is an annual two-day event, which will take place on Saturday, May 4 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, May 5 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. where 52 of the Monmouth County history sites open their doors to visitors and waive their admission fees. A Weekend in Old Monmouth is a self-guided tour. 

A Weekend in Old Monmouth is also available online. A virtual tour has been created to present all 50 tour locations in a linear, place-based narrative with photos.

Each tour site is now a "story point" on an interactive map using geo-location technology. You can click sequentially through the narrative, or you can browse one of the tour routes by interacting with the map. The tour may be viewed on a computer, tablet, or smart phone.

Visiting the multiple pages within the virtual tour will help you to learn more about each of the tour routes and clicking on each point will reveal more about the specific historic sites.
