Programs > Roundtables



Preservation New Jersey brings together leaders from neighborhood groups, community organizations and other preservation advocates from various regions across the state to discuss preservation concerns, share information and techniques, and to help find solutions to issues that are affecting the historic character and quality of neighborhoods and communities.

Preservation Roundtables are a platform for dialogue among representatives of diverse communities that helps to build a stronger local, regional and statewide preservation community. They build awareness through education and networking, provide direct local assistance and help to advocate for preservation friendly public policy.


“The Roundtable was extremely useful. It … initiate(d) conversation between not only smaller historical commissions and societies but also municipalities, even within different counties (Salem & Gloucester). In a time when resource sharing in municipalities is the rage, it opened doors. It also may have lit a fire under one small community to initiate a historic district. Most certainly, it is important for historical (groups) to communicate and know that others are struggling with similar issues. Communication is an important tool that seems to build a level of stamina during preservation struggles.” (Ron Magill, Salem Old House Foundation | NJ Advisor to the National Trust for Historic Preservation)
