The National Register of Historic Places: The Role it Plays in Our Local Communities

Historic Preservation Consultant Kathleen Galop will speak about the National Register of Historic Places at Bernardsville Public Library on Monday, December 12 at 7:00 pm.

Established under the Historic Sites Act of 1935 and expanded by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the National Register serves as the official list of historic resources at the national level. Attendees will learn about the properties and landscapes in our area which have received this national distinction and gain a better understanding of how and why they are protected. Hundreds of New Jersey properties are among the 77,000 listed on the National Register.

Kathleen P. Galop, Esq. serves as Principal of Preservation Possibilities LLC, an historic preservation consulting firm based in Summit, NJ. An attorney with extensive experience and a national reputation in the administration of historic preservation projects, Ms. Galop was the recipient of a John F. Kennedy Library Foundation Research Grant and a White House Historical Association Grant to conduct historic preservation research on Jacqueline Kennedy. She lectures frequently throughout New Jersey on historic preservation and also serves as an Adjunct Professor in the Certificate in Historic Preservation Program at Drew University in Madison, NJ where she lectures on preservation and historic landscapes and teaches a course on Grant Writing.

This program is offered through the Horizons Speakers Bureau of the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
