Looking Back to 2013: Preservation New Jersey Awards

PNJ Gala Postcard

HMR Architects was the recipient of the New Preservation Initiatives Award at the 2013 Preservation New Jersey Annual Gala.  The firm was recognized along with the Mount Tabor Historical Society for our work on the Historic Preservation Master Plan for the Mount Tabor Historic District.

Mount Tabor was founded in 1869 as a Methodist Camp Meeting summer retreat.  It developed over time into a year-round residential community and retains a high degree of architectural integrity.  Also remarkable about the historic district is the extensive collection of historic photographic and print documentation held by the Mount Tabor Historical Society.  A National Register Nomination for the district, also completed by HMR, is currently under review by the NJ Historic Preservation Office.

In addition to the firm award, Phil Holt, one of the founding partners of HMR Architects, received the Sarah P. Fiske Legacy and Leadership Award.  Phil founded HMR in 1965, then Holt & Morgan Architects, and has worked on countless preservation and new design projects throughout New Jersey.  Testament to Phil’s commitment to preservation is the fact that he has served on the New Jersey Historic Review Board for over 30 years.
