Tuckerton Borough Landmarks Commission

Presentation of Plaques

The Tuckerton Landmarks Commission is the outgrowth of a state-funded study sponsored by the Tuckerton Borough Council and carried out by Town Plan Associates, for the development of a Marine Historic District. Part of the plan was to create a landmarks commission to designate historic districts and landmarks and to oversee the preservation of the town's historic sites and areas.

The Commission was established by the Borough Council in late 1982 and the first mapping of districts and landmarks was accomplished by mid-1983. Additional designations were made in 1990 and 1997.
