Do you own historic property?

In an effort to protect Newark’s architectural and historic heritage, individual buildings and larger districts have been designated as historic, and may be placed on the local, state and national register of historic places. Owners of these properties have certain preservation and upkeep responsibilities.

To find out if your property is designated historic, please contact the Landmarks and Historic Preservation Commission secretary at (973) 733-6204. To find out more information about historic property owner responsibilities, download:
