School’s Out for Summer!

Planning a day trip to one of the many historic villages in New Jersey?  Do you have a favorite spot at one of NJ’s historic shore towns?  Maybe you prefer sailing on a historic lake or tracing the steps of our forefathers?  Sometimes its just a simple picnic in a historic park.

    Stephanie and I have been corresponding, but I still don’t see Cadwalader Heights and our Annual Historic House Tour on the list above. I thought it would be added to the list of nominees by now (today is July 31st). I can’t ask anyone to vote until I know we are a nominee! Please advise.

      We do have Cadwalader Heights Park and neighborhood in Trenton on the list (please see the most recent post). The nomination was not on my list when this post was published. We will be running the poll from Monday, August 3rd (starting late afternoon) through close of business August 10th. We will post the link to the poll on this blog, our facebook page and our website so you can direct those to vote for your site at that time.

      If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call our office at 609.392.6409 or email us at

      Good luck!
