Pretty sure this is the first public tour of the Hahne building that I’ve seen aside from media-only.
Attendees will receive an insider tour of Newark’s historic Hahne & Company building, which is currently under renovation as part of a major mixed-use development, integrating many of the pivotal principles advocated by the Action Agenda. The over 150 currently registered attendees will learn first hand how efforts to revitalize and preserve landmarked buildings like the Hahne & Company Department Store — which previously sat vacant for 30 years — are helping to sustain historic neighborhoods across the nation.
The beloved, late Dr. Clement Price of Rutgers University – Newark will be honored at the event with an award given jointly by three national organizations, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation and the Preservation Rightsizing Network, to which he contributed so meaningfully over the course of his career as a quintessential public historian.
Members of the public and the media must RSVP to attend the Hahne & Company building tour.
