Historic Advisory Committee

Historic Advisory Committee

The Historic Advisory Committee would like to connect with people who enjoy researching the history and architecture of their Somerville home and help us develop a database of Somerville’s rich and varied architectural history. We also are looking for members to serve on the committee or who are interested in volunteering from time to time when we hold special events. To learn more about the committee, e-mail us at historicadvisory@somervillenj.org.

Mission Statement

We will promote, protect and preserve the historic heritage, character and architecture of the Borough of Somerville by increasing public awareness of that heritage on local, regional, state, and national levels, and by creating for our citizens and our descendants resources that accentuate and emphasize the town’s history. We will provide informed and consensus-based recommendations regarding the conservation of historical artifacts, structures, and other property, with a focus on enhancing the quality of life for our residents, and preserving the historic character of the Borough while allowing for appropriate growth and change.
