DENVILLE, NJ -- The Morris County Historic Preservation Trust Fund Review Board has recommended $4.4 million in county grants to help preserve, restore or protect 28 historic sites in 18 towns across Morris County. The grant money would come from the voter-approved Morris County Open Space, Farmland, Floodplain Protection and Historic Preservation Trust Fund. The grants ranged from the $4,500 to the $480,000. The Ayres Farm Garage in Denville received a recommendation of $17,500 for construction documents.

"The restoration, rehabilitation, and preservation work that is aided by this voter-approved grant program allows us to preserve and better understand Morris County’s history, and it maintains important links to our past,’’ said Morris County Freeholder Stephen Shaw.

Other recommended projects are located in Boonton, Chatham Township, Dover, East Hanover, Hanover, Kinnelon, Madison, Mendham, Morristown, Mount Arlington, Mount Olive, Netcong, Parsippany, Randolph, Rockaway Township, Roxbury and Washington Township.
