THE SUSSEX COUNTY HISTORIC MARKER PROGRAM

 

The placement of historic plaques in Sussex County began in the year 2000. Since that time, thirty-two markers have been fabricated and placed at historic sites throughout Sussex County. The program got its beginning when two markers relating the history of Newton were placed in the Newton Park on the Green. The idea came about as part of a project to revitalize the park in a combined program which involved the Sussex County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the Newton Historic Preservation Commission.

Following is a list of markers by municipality.
