We have a wonderful old building which the Township of Long Hill has owned since 1871. Located on Long Hill Road in Millington, it's been a school, a library, and for 75 years, our town hall. It could become our Historical Society's museum and township history learning center. How can we make this happen?

It's very simple. Saving the building will take money, but there's nothing to worry about. And it won't involve raising your taxes. Instead, there is a referendum question on the ballot this November 7, 2006. It's called Municipal Question No. 1. Voting YES will allow our local government to allocate a portion of our existing open space tax for historic preservation. That can be used as "seed money" to provide the Township's contribution to much bigger grants available at the county and state levels.
