WEST ORANGE, NJ — During the next meeting of the West Orange Historic Preservation Commission—to be held at town hall on Wednesday at 7 p.m.—a representative from Easton Architects, a New York-based firm that recently completed the third site survey of the township, will present the findings of that survey.
The site survey focused on the homes and other structures in the area between Gregory Avenue and Northfield Avenue, west to the county property line with Turtle Back Zoo.
According to Joseph Fagan, Public Information Officer for the Township of West Orange, Easton Architects identified examples of properties that “are historically significant and contribute to the overall historic character of the township.”
“Understanding the significance of historic properties in West Orange is important in understanding our town’s history," said Fagan, who also serves as the township's official historian. "I would urge everyone who can to attend this meeting to learn more about this professional survey and obtain a deeper knowledge of our local history.”
In addition to giving a visual presentation of the survey findings, a representative of the firm will also field questions from the public during this meeting.
