FREEHOLD – Residents can nominate individuals who have supported local building preservation projects for the Monmouth County Historical Commission’s annual Preservation Award.
Structures of historical worth—buildings more than 50 years old—whose preservation efforts were mostly completed in 2018 may be nominated. The deadline for nominations is April 19.
“Residents who work to preserve local buildings and structures with historical significance deserve praise and recognition for their efforts,” Freeholder Lillian G. Burry, liaison to the County’s Historical Commission, said. “The annual Preservation Awards Program has a tradition of finding historic gems throughout the County and acknowledging the people who maintain our past.”
Dennis Murphy, who restored the former 1903 Upper Freehold Baptist Church in Imlaystown for private use, was awarded last year. Tona Construction and Management were also awarded for renovating the former Bennett Street School in Freehold for use as business suites.
The forms are available here.
Mail completed forms by the deadline to Monmouth County Historical Commission, Hall of Records Annex, Second Floor, Freehold NJ 07728.
