Historic Site Management Grant
Grant Award: $50,000 (2009) Grant Recipient: Morris County Tourism Bureau County: MorrisMunicipality: Morristown
Morristown is an area rich with historic and cultural resources associated with important events and people of the American Revolution, industrial innovation and the development of Morristown as a center of transportation, culture and commerce. While heritage and cultural sites are promoted by the Morris County Tourism Bureau, helping visitors locate the sites is the purpose of the way finding signage. The current system is poorly designed and posted.
The grant helped fund the preparation of a wayfinding signage program for the city that will serve as a model project for other municipalities and counties. The program makes recommendations on the design, placement and content of signs to help residents and visitors to locate the area’s sites of interest, and the Bureau is now seeking funding for the fabrication and installation of select signs.
