Trenton, NJ – The Millington Schoolhouse/Old Town Hall in Long Hill Township, NJ received a 2017 New Jersey Historic Preservation Award on May 11, 2017. The coveted award was presented at a ceremony at the Burlington County Olde Courthouse to six preservation projects from across New Jersey.
“These awards are our chance to honor the many private individuals, organizations and corporations; and state, county and local governments who work hard to preserve New Jersey’s historic places,” said Katherine Marcopul, Administrator and Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer. “It is inspiring to see citizens taking action to preserve New Jersey’s historic resources!”
The Millington Schoolhouse/Old Town Hall landmark building has served the community since its initial construction over 200 years ago. Adapting to local needs and growth, the structure grew with several additions to become a library, and then the town hall. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
This award-winning rehabilitation of the structure is guided by a preservation plan developed by Clarke Caton Hintz, and includes retention of the original school room, which will serve as open community meeting space and an exhibition gallery.
The annual NJ Historic Preservation Awards honor projects, groups or persons, dedicated to preserving New Jersey’s history. This year marks the 27th anniversary of the awards celebrating May as National Preservation Month. The Awards are presented by the NJ State Historic Preservation Office in the Department of Environmental Protection, and the NJ Historic Sites Council.

“Jersey City and Hoboken, and now Newark, have experienced really incredible redevelopment, and I think that Trenton is next,” explained longtime city resident John Hatch, a principal of HHG Development Associates, LLC and a partner at Clarke Caton Hintz.
