One of City of Trenton’s greatest assets is its historic urban form and the buildings that define that form. This ranges from historic homes to landmark buildings which played an important role in the history of the city, state and country. Homes range from those built early in the colonial era (the 1700s), the industrial revolution, as well as contemporary housing. These historic neighborhoods are unique within the Central Jersey region. They are often quite walkable, characterized by smaller streets, and generally, have high-quality construction. As such, they are an asset to the city and - if leveraged properly - could attract moderate to high-income residents with the disposable incomes necessary to maintain these homes.
The following initiative addresses historic homes and neighborhoods. As the City develops it Historic Preservation Report it should add additional initiatives to this section.
