26th Historic Preservation Awards
The New Jersey Department
of Environmental Protection (DEP), Historic Preservation Office and NJ Historic
Sites Council are pleased to announce the 26th Annual Historic Preservation
Awards. National Preservation Month happens every May. Throughout New Jersey, in all of our communities, there are important places that celebrate our history. These places are varied, such as schools, churches, battlefields, homes, or farms, but they all tell the story of New Jersey.
In celebration of Historic Preservation Month, the 2016 Awards Ceremony will be held on May 12, 2016 from 3-5 pm at the Morristown National Historical Park, Morristown, New Jersey.
The Morristown National Historical Park was named the first national historical park in the United States, and, together with the State Historic Preservation Office, joins in celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the National Park Service and the 50th Anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act.
