Activities and Events


Thank you for your support in making Preservation New Jersey's 2nd Annual Heart & and Soul Valentine's Evening Gala bigger and better for 2015!

This dinner and your donations are important to raise funds to begin the major construction improvements needed to reopen the 1867 Sanctuary at Ewing to the public for community and regional uses. It was wonderful to see you there!


Preservation New Jersey's 2nd Annual “Rock & Roll” Car & Bike Show and Concert was a success! Over $2,000 was raised to benefit the restoration and reuse of the 1867 Sanctuary at Ewing.

All proceeds and donations will support the maintenance, repair and restoration of the 1867 Sanctuary at Ewing, a project of Preservation New Jersey. Donations are fully tax deductible! The estimated cost of all work is $750,000, all of which must be raised through contributions and events before the building can be opened as a public arts and performance venue.

See photos of our 2014 car show!
