The New Jersey Historic Trust recently hosted a reception at Drumthwacket, the Governor's mansion in Princeton, to acknowledge the recipients of Historic Site Management Grants in the 2005 grant round. Deputy Commissioner Charles A. Richman and the Trust's Board Vice-Chair Carolann Clynes greeted representatives from many of the funded sites and commended their efforts to plan for the preservation of New Jersey's history. Attendees enjoyed the holiday decorations, arranged by Garden Clubs from around the state, in each public room of the Governor's Mansion.
