Thank you for attending
Building a Place for History

2016 NJ History and
Historic Preservation Conference

June 8 – 9, 2016 in South Orange


Thank you to all of the conference sponsors, speakers, volunteers, and participants who helped to make this a rewarding and successful event.
This year nearly 400 people participated in the workshops, tours, classroom sessions and vendor exhibit area. Our guest speaker Laurel O’Sullivan inspired conference attendees to integrate advocacy into their work and volunteer activities. Classroom sessions covered an array of topics for professionals, site stewards, historians, archaeologists, museum managers, and history enthusiasts. Additionally, we were able to offer continuing education credits for AIA, AICP and ASLA.
Please enjoy a slideshow of the conference available below as a video or pdf. We look forward to seeing you next year!
