About the New Jersey Gazette
The New Jersey Gazette is a collaborative effort of the New Jersey Historic Trust, New Jersey Historical Commission and the Division of Archives and Records Management. These three state agencies are dedicated to the preservation and promotion of New Jersey's heritage and have come together to produce this quarterly e-newsletter.

The New Jersey Gazette is named after New Jersey's first newspaper, which was first published in Trenton on December 17, 1777. Following in the tradition of its namesake, the New Jersey Gazette will serve the history community and interested New Jersey residents in the same manner. The Gazette is a conduit for the public to learn about the preservation efforts, current history projects and upcoming opportunities to ensure that our state's past will always be a vital part of its future.

The Mission of the Trust is to advance historic preservation in New Jersey for the benefit of future generations through education, stewardship and financial investment programs that save our heritage and strengthen our communities.
