About the event
PNJ will host the announcement and networking activities on Sunday, June 4, 2023 from 9:00am - 11:00am at the Sandy Hook Life Saving Station No. 1 at the Sandy Hook – Gateway National Recreation Area.
PNJ will be joined by the advocates for this year’s endangered historic places to support New Jersey’s threatened cultural and architectural heritage. The 10 Most Endangered Historic Places program spotlights irreplaceable historic, architectural, cultural, and archeological resources in New Jersey that are in imminent danger of being lost. The act of listing these resources acknowledges their importance to the heritage of New Jersey and draws attention to the predicaments that endanger their survival and the survival of historic resources statewide. The list, generated from nominations by the public, aims to attract new perspectives and ideas to sites in desperate need of creative solutions.
Although PNJ’s 10 Most Endangered Places list is published once per year, the fight for the preservation of our historic and cultural resources is daily. Our educational programming and advocacy efforts continue year-round. Many properties previously listed among the 10 Most Endangered Historic Places have once again become assets to New Jersey’s communities. We will see this trend and encouragement as we return back to Sandy Hook, who has been nominated several times to the 10 Most.
