Montrose Park was designated as an historic district in 1997 and is listed on both the State of New Jersey and National Register of Historic Places (NR Reference #: 97000978). The Montrose Park Historic District is located in South Orange, NJ and features approximately 550 homes representing classic turn-of-the-19th early 20th-century architectural styles including Victorian, Colonial Revival, Queen Anne, Tudor and Shingle Style homes.

Funds raised by MPHDA contribute to the continued beautification of the district, preservation of the community's historic essence and the development of programs that encourage residents to maintain and preserve their unique homes. Our mission is to promote, preserve and beautify the Montrose Park Historic District, maintain its integrity and enhance the quality of life for all residents.
