Historic Preservation

Historic Highlights image thumbnailThe Heritage Commission supports historic preservation in Morris County by providing information about historic sites and their role in the county’s history. Funding for historic preservation is available from the Morris County Historic Preservation Trust Fund.

The Heritage Commission has information on many of the historic sites and structures in the county that are included in the Morris County Historic Sites Survey (39 volumes). The Commission publishes a series of tour brochures featuring a brief history of each town in the county with photographs and notes on its historic sites. These Historic Highlights brochures have been completed for about two-thirds of the county’s 39 municipalities. Contact the Commission for more information.
