Forest Hill Community Association

Welcome to the Forest Hill Community Association's web site. The FHCA was founded in 1984 and incorporated in 1986. We remain committed to our mission to foster closer relationships among residents of the community, similar community-minded organizations and agencies of the government, in order to improve the quality of life for all the residents of our neighborhood.

The Forest Hill neighborhood, added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1990 and designated by the city of Newark as an historic district in the same year, is well described by noted city historian Charles Cummings, “Forest Hill, an architectural and residential jewel, lays to the east of Branch Brook Park, an Essex County park and the oldest county park in the United States. Forest Hill is one of Newark's most attractive and elegant neighborhoods. It was developed between 1880 and 1925 through the efforts of three great families, the Hellers, the Ballantines and the Clarks. These families lived here, built their great homes here, and served as captains of nineteenth century industrial Newark.”

As the neighborhood continues to prosper with its rich mix of cultural, economic and racial diversity, we look forward to an exciting future for our association, Forest Hill and the resurgent city of Newark in which we live. We invite you to look around our website, stop by at any of our events and experience the pleasure of living in Newark's historic Forest Hill district.
