Forest Hill Historic District


Living in the the Forest Hill Historic District means that your home has special historical, cultural, or aesthetic value and is an important part of Newark's heritage.  The district is bounded on the west by Branch Brook Park, on the east by Mt. Prospect Avenue, on the south by 2nd Avenue, and on the north by Verona Avenue.  There are exceptions carved out on those border streets due to the age or use of some buildings.  Click on each title below to view these documents:
