In 2006, the State of New Jersey purchased Dr. James Still Office for the purpose of historic restoration. The process has been hindered with the diversion of state funds to Hurricane Sandy Relief. In 2009, a preservation plan was developed and all identified hazardous materials has since been removed. In 2016, the site was placed on Preservation New Jersey 10 most endangered historic sites. Recently, in early 2021, a stabilization project on Dr. James Still's Office was completed. Funded by NJ DEP's Division of Parks and Forestry, this project reinforced the building's foundation and returned the office to its original structure, including its exterior trim from the 1800's. We, the advisory committee, continue to meet and work with NJ DEP State Parks and Recreation officials in order to keep this site on their radar. We recognize that it will take more than just pressure on state officials, but historic grants, corporate and individual sponsorship will be needed to preserve this historic site. Grateful for the recent progress, we are committed to see the full restoration of Dr. James Still's office project to finish. We encourage individuals to donate, contact their corporations, contact their state representatives and tell them about Dr. James Still and the need to preserve this site for generations to come. The 2009 Preservation Plan estimated $600K dollars in order to preserve and restore. In 2018, that cost estimate has increased to $800K.
