Historic Preservation

Roundtable Meeting Scheduled

For applicants that have received HP funding assistance in the past, we will be holding a Roundtable meeting to discuss program requirements in the areas of insurance and public accessibility, as well as other topics pertaining to the management and maintenance of historic sites. We envision the Roundtable as a forum where participants can share their expertise and experiences with others.

The Roundtable meeting will be held on Thursday, March 2, 2017, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Morris County Cultural Center, 300 Mendham Road, Morris Township, NJ. Attending will be a panel of HP Review Board members, as well as representatives from County Risk Management.

Please RSVP by Monday, Feb. 27, 2017 to Ray Chang, 973-829-8138, [email protected].

Approved Grants


Historic PreservationThe Morris County Board of Chosen Freeholders created the Morris County Historic Preservation Trust Fund (Fund) to help support the preservation of the county’s exceptional abundance of historic resources. The Fund was created after Morris County voters approved a referendum in November 2002 authorizing the Freeholders to allow historic preservation funding under the Open Space Trust Fund, as permitted under state legislation.

The Fund considers grants for the acquisition, stabilization, rehabilitation, restoration or preservation of historic resources by municipalities, qualified non-profits and the County. All funded activities must be in conformance with the Secretary of Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation. Applications for plans and reports associated with the implementation of a historic preservation project are also eligible. Historic resources must be listed, or certified as eligible for listing, on the New Jersey and National Registers of Historic Places, in order to be eligible for the program.
