Come for the house, stay for the community!
Forest Hill is a residential neighborhood in the North Ward of Newark, NJ that was listed on the New Jersey and National Registers of Historic Places in 1990. It encompasses approximately 1,200 mostly single-family homes of varying architectural styles that range from medium to large to manor-sized. The homes in this historic district were mostly built in the late 1880's through the 1920's.
Living in a Registered Historic District has many benefits, and it also has some responsibilities. For instance, if you plan to make changes to the exterior of your home, you must file an application with the Newark Landmarks & Historic Preservation Commission to make sure that your plans fit in with the neighborhood and adhere to the State and City's guidelines for historic properties. That's how we maintain the historic character of the Forest Hill neighborhood.
