The South Orange Historical and Preservation Society (SOHPS) was formed in 1986. The goal of the organization is to further the study of the history and architecture of the Village of South Orange.
The Society strives to:
~ Provide programs to disseminate historical, preservation and architectural information.
~ Support preservation activities within the Village of South Orange.
~ Support the recognition of landmark buildings and historic neighborhoods.
~ Promote adaptive reuse of significant historic structures rather than abandonment or demolition.
