To encourage the preservation of the county's historic resources and its history, Somerset County recognizes exemplary historic preservation and heritage efforts through a biennial presentation of awards.
The purpose of the awards program is to:
- increase public awareness of historic preservation and history;
- promote excellence in historic preservation and history; and
- recognize worthy individuals, organizations, or projects.
Made possible by funds from the Somerset County Cultural & Heritage Commission, a partner of the New Jersey Historical Commission.
