No. The Preservation Society was a grass-roots preservation advocacy group, led by Joan Aiken, which disbanded in the late 1990′s. In 2009, another preservation/open space advocacy group was formed by concerned Haddonfield residents (“Preservation Haddonfield“). The Preservation Society and the Historical Society were entirely unrelated organizations. Preservation Haddonfield and the Historical Society of Haddonfield are not connected in any way.
The Historic Preservation Commission (“HPC“) is a municipal advisory board created in 1971 through the Borough’s Historic District Ordinance. HPC members are appointed by the Commissioners and are responsible for a design review of all Certificate of Appropriateness applications for exterior alterations, in-fill construction, site alterations, etc. for structures within Haddonfield Historic District. The Commission gives their recommendations to the Planning Board and/or the Zoning Office regarding these applications. The list of structures in the Historic District and the boundries of the Historic District can be found in the Borough of Haddonfield’s Historic District Ordinance. There is no connection between the Historic Preservation Commission and the Historical Society of Haddonfield.
No, these questions should be directed to the Historic Preservation Commission and/or the Technical Historic Preservation Consultant. House Color: There are no municipal regulations regarding house color and so no building permit/application regarding color choice (or to paint your house, for that matter) is required by the HPC. Building Additions/Alterations: The Borough Historic Preservation Consultant (Tuesdays afternoons in the Zoning Office, by appointment) is available to give input and advice to residents on any preservation question including paint color suggestions, either inside or outside of the Historic District. The Historical Society Research Library in the Mickle House (next to Greenfield Hall) is a great resource for historical research of any kind, including pictures and early maps from the extensive book and manuscript collections. For more information on the Library and its hours, please see RESEARCH LIBRARY The Library is open during the week and by appt.
Most can not. But if the condition of the item permits, the pages can be xeroxed.
Many years ago (at least 25) it was decided that spring time was best… the holidays were over and folks hadn’t yet started summer vacations.
Presently we have 60 living Life members. But there is always room for more on the plaque in the hallway of Greenfield Hall!
