Remembering Barbara Wyatt -- The Woodbridge Township Historic Preservation Commission remembers Barbara Wyatt who passed away recently and extends its deepest sympathy to her family. A long-time resident of Woodbridge, Barbara was a pillar in the community. An ardent educator and civic leader, Barbara was instrumental in preserving history in Woodbridge Township, the oldest chartered township in New Jersey and celebrating its 350th Anniversary this year.
Along with two others, Barbara was instrumental in working to preserve the Woodbridge Library, now the Barron Arts Center, from becoming a Hess gas station and along with other colleagues worked to gain National Register recognition for the Barron Arts Center and the First Presbyterian Church. A professional at all levels, Barbara will always be respected for her continuous pursuit to preserve Woodbridge’s history while helping to move Woodbridge forward. She will be sorely missed.

The mission of the Woodbridge Township Historic Preservation Commission shall be to carry out advisory, educational, and informational functions to promote historic preservation in the Township; prepare a survey of historic sites of the Township; make recommendations to the Planning Board on the historic preservation plan and the implications for preservation of historic sites; advise the Planning Board and the Board of Adjustment on applications for development; and advise the Planning Board of the inclusion of historic sites in the recommended improvement program.

Beginning with Woodbridge proper, the Commission has completed three tours and is currently in the process of the fourth. Tour brochures are available in a variety of locations throughout the township and may be viewed or downloaded on this site.
