We encourage all who wish to see this beautiful home restored to its former glory, please support these residents in their blight. All too often historical locations are torn down or rezoned for business purposes. Once they are gone, you cannot bring back history. We would love to see this home restored to its former beauty by someone who is interested in the preservation of historical landmarks.
We encourage all who wish to maintain Matawan's historical sites to attend the Planning & Zoning Board meetings. Please help preserve Matawan's history.
Another building of historical significance is the Matawan Train Station. You may have noticed the porch has been taken down in the interest of public safety. The structural pieces have been saved for restoration purposes. The station will be receiving a fresh coat of paint utilizing the colors from the time period it was built. This is NJ Transit property and we appreciate them finally doing something to preserve Matawan's history. Can't wait to see it restored. Just think we will no longer be embarrassed when visitors to Matawan are greeted by the "blighted" appearance of the area. It will stop being an eyesore and give one of the entrances to Matawan a sorely needed face lift.
More to follow as it progresses.
