Organization of the Week: Preserve Greystone

Every Monday, I highlight a non-profit related to history or the arts, a historical society, preservation group or friends group whose main objective is to promote the historical and artistic history of New Jersey.

This week, I am featuring Preserve Greystone. Founded in 2008, Preserve Greystone is a New Jersey-based organization dedicated to protecting the open space and historic buildings on the former Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital property in Morris County, New Jersey. Made up of preservationists, environmentalists, and concerned citizens, Preserve Greystone’s mission is to ensure the survival of the historic Kirkbride Building and the surrounding land as valuable open space.

The group has organized forums and lectures, generated news articles in major New Jersey media, participated in local events, and coordinated a petition drive that has amassed thousands of signatures. Preserve Greystone continues to unify the effort and work with our public officials to preserve the historic Kirkbride Building and the priceless open space around it.

Preserve Greystone relies on memberships, fundraising, and countless volunteers to continue its mission. For more information on meetings and programs sponsored by Preserve Greystone or to become a member or volunteer, visit or e-mail
