The Heritage Commission Has Moved

Phase four of the move is nearly complete! Communications with our administrative staff may be briefly interrupted while we continue to settle into our new offices. The archival collection is now on site and is being reshelved and inventoried.   We will begin cleaning and evaluating the condition of the collection over the spring and summer months.

Appointments can be made by contacting the Commission offices at 973.829.8114 Tuesdays – Thursdays. We apologize for any inconvenience during this transition.

This notice will be withdrawn upon our return to normal operations.

Thank you for your patience.
