Stop the Wrecking Ball

Coming this November

The Trenton Historical Society hosts its annual Stop the Wrecking Ball to raise money to fund the Preservation Committee’s  Restore Trenton! Historical Property Rehabilitation Grant Program.  The Ball is held in November at one of Trenton’s historic properties and usually includes a behind the scenes tour of the property where guests get to visit areas not generally open to the public.  

This event allows THS members and supporters to enjoy an elegant evening in a building they would otherwise not see, while contributing to the preservation of Trenton homes.  In addition to great food catered by local restaurants and live music, the gala includes a silent auction of original artwork, Trenton memorabilia, and goods and services donated by Trenton businesses.

Some locations of former Stop the Wrecking Ball galas include: St. Michael’s Episcopal Church at 104 North Warren Street, The Ferdinand Roebling Mansion at 222 West State Street, Thomas Edison State College at 101 West State Street, Liederkranz Hall, at 1027 South Clinton Avenue and the Trenton Trust Building on West State Street.
