A Legacy of Historic Preservation

Preserving, protecting and promoting the architectural, cultural, and environmental heritage of Jersey City.

Our Mission

Since its founding in 1999, JC Landmarks has held walking and bus tours to share the history of Jersey City with visitors and residents. It has advocated for landmark preservation at the local and state levels. It has partnered with neighborhood associations, students, artists, churches, and individuals and organizations throughout our diverse city. The Jersey City Landmarks Conservancy believes that preservation is not simply about saving historic buildings and structures: preservation weaves these treasures into the vibrant economic and cultural fabric of our great city.

Featured Cause

Zoning and Teardowns

Interactive Tours

JC Landmarks is pleased to announce our latest website feature - interactive online tours of Bergen Hill Historic District and The Heights. Each tour features more than 20 stops - with each map point offering summaries, little-known facts and historical materials gathered by local experts.
