Launched by the New Jersey Historic Trust in 2017, Journey Through Jersey is the first website dedicated solely to promote heritage tourism in New Jersey, and to support and improve quality visitor experiences at the state’s many and diverse historic sites.

Journey Through Jersey was awarded a New Jersey Historic Preservation Award in 2017 for, “pioneering efforts in sustainability, historic preservation education, or interpretive programs” from the New Jersey Historic Preservation Office and Historic Sites Council, and the Sarah B. Fiske Legacy & Leadership Award from Preservation New Jersey. Since 2017, Journey Through Jersey has continued to strive as the state's go to website for all things heritage tourism.


Help support the Trust’s heritage tourism initiative by carrying New Jersey's history wherever you drive with Discover NJ History license plates on your vehicle. Adapted from a painting by renowned New Jersey artist Harry Devlin, these beautifully designed plates will remind others that history is never far away in the Garden State. Proceeds from the sale of these plates support the Discover NJ History License Plate Fund for Heritage Tourism, which provides small grants (up to $5,000) to develop and promote visitor ready sites as heritage tourism destinations.
