Our Story

HENF was established in 1984 when, like now, Elizabeth faced a wave of development activity then taking place in and around the heart of a growing and thriving city that threatened to upend our century-old neighborhood. The board has recently been reconstituted and reenergized with an immediate focus: Carrying forward the recent efforts of an all-volunteer group of neighbors to establish Elizabeth as a Local Historic District (LHD). 

 

The organization has reinstated its 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status and has begun seeking tax-deductible donations to support progress towards achieving a LHD designation for Elizabeth in addition to its other projects and initiatives.
