Landmarks Commission for Historic Preservation 

The Trenton Landmarks Commission for Historic Preservation was created by a Trenton City Council Ordinance in 1974 and serves as one of the first established and longest functioning local Landmarks Commissions in New Jersey. Since its inception the Commission has designated fifty-eight (58) local historic landmarks that include eight (8) historic districts. The Commission reviews all improvements to the exterior of designated historic properties as well as the design of new infill buildings in Trenton’s historic districts. The Commission advises both the City’s Planning Board and Zoning Board of Adjustment on issues relating to historic preservation for development applications presented to these boards.

On June 28, 2016, the Landmarks Commission for Historic Preservation honored nineteen (19) property owners with a certificate of appreciation for the improvements they made to their property in conformance with historic guidelines. A slide show of the recognized properties that includes current day and historic photos can be found here. The historic photos of those properties recognized can be downloaded here
