The West Bergen Historic District is an architecturally important collection of primarily c.1880 to 1930 era residential buildings including row houses, free standing frame houses, and apartment buildings. The proposed historic district contains 300 to 400 contributing buildings. Portions of the proposed district contain larger scale houses, which is unique to this part of Jersey City and different from the other listed historic districts in Jersey City.

The Trust grant will help fund the preparation of a historic district nomination to the National Register of Historic Places.
