Flemington, NJ – The Hunterdon County Cultural and Heritage Commission seeks nominations for Hunterdon’s Most Endangered Historic Sites. Submissions are due by March 31. Selected sites will be announced May 12 during National Preservation Month.

“Hunterdon has a richness of history and hundreds of buildings and structures erected before 1900. We hope in highlighting the ones that need help, we can motivate people to organize groups that will restore and save them,” said Commission Chair Lora Jones.

Any Hunterdon resident is eligible to nominate a site in the county in need of historic preservation. Nomination forms are available on the Commission’s website http://co.hunterdon.nj.us/depts/c&h/c&h.htm and should be mailed to the Cultural and Heritage Commission at PO Box 2900, Flemington, NJ 08822-2900 or emailed to cultural@co.hunterdon.nj.us.

Entries should include the name and a photo of the building or structure, its physical address, historic significance, and how it is threatened. Residents making nominations should include their names, U.S. Mail or email addresses, and telephone numbers. .

The commission first supported a most endangered survey in 2007. The list has grown over the years with mixed success. Some recognized sites – like the 1759 Vought House – have been rescued; others have been demolished or left in a state of continuing ruin. “The list is a starting place to rally Hunterdon residents who want to keep our history alive,” said Jones.

The Hunterdon County Cultural and Heritage Commission supports and develops programs to promote interest and participation in and understanding of local arts, culture, and historic events. Financial support for the Hunterdon County Cultural & Heritage Commission’s general operations and programs is made possible in part by a grant from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
