Awards Ceremony:

Beginning in 1989 preservationists have gathered together each year to celebrate National Historic Preservation Month by honoring individuals, business, and organizations in New Jersey who have made important contributions to the preservation of the State's historic resources. The purpose of the Historic Preservation Awards program is to increase public awareness of historic preservation and to recognize contributions by individuals, organizations and agencies, projects of excellent quality, and volunteer contributions to preserve historic resources.

Technical Assistance and Information



The HPO maintains a diverse collection of information resources regarding many preservation topics. Most of these resources are available free of charge from the HPO and can be downloaded from this website or mailed upon request. HPO staff also routinely assist individuals and organizations undertaking a variety of preservation activities through in-house research, site visits, or general consultation. Follow the link below for more information.




New Jersey Historic Preservation Plan

Each state historic preservation office is responsible for developing a historic preservation plan, which is approved by the National Park Service in the Department of the Interior. The New Jersey Historic Preservation Plan (NJHPP) has been in place since 1996. It has served to guide many initiatives statewide such as the New Jersey State Development/ Redevelopment Plan, numerous county and municipal historic preservation plans and the activities of the HPO.
