Since its formation in 1986 through the present, the South Orange Historical and Preservation Society (SOHPS) has supported historic preservation and education efforts.

Their primary objectives are:

  • Developing outreach programs to all the businesses, historical societies, churches, schools and universities within South Orange and the surrounding areas.
  • Developing educational programs of historic significance for our local communities, libraries and school curricula and educational environments.
  • Preservation of significant historic structures, including the historic buildings and districts on the National and State Historic Registers.
  • Increasing membership and membership participation in all events and SOHPS activities
