Martin Berry House Preservation Plan

Read the Martin Berry House Preservation Plan. The purpose of the Preservation Plan is to document the existing conditions of the Martin Berry House and to identify the key historic elements to be preserved during any future work at the building. As described by the New Jersey Historic Preservation Office, the goal of a preservation plan is to “assess and guide the effects of a proposed treatment or construction-related capital project on the existing fabric of a property.”

Research for the report sought to document the original construction of the building, as well as changes in ownership over time and how these changes impacted the physical form of the building. The report seeks to document these changes through written descriptions, photography, and drawings. In conjunction with the research, HMR and its team completed a full interior and exterior investigation of the house. While providing baseline data on the architectural conditions of the building, it also helped illuminate the construction chronology of changes that have been made.
