Preservation New Jersey recently announced their list of top 10 endangered historic places and included Hinchliffe Stadium under the ‘Historic sites Hurt by Lack of Public Funding,’ listing.

From the article –

Historic sites hurt by lack of public funding — In November, voters approved an amendment to the state constitution dedicating funds from the corporate business tax to preserve open space, farmland and historic resources. Gov. Chris Christie's budget announced in February recommends $1.4 million for the New Jersey Historic Trust, which preservationists say is not enough to sustain and staff the grant program.

Sites most threatened by a lack of public funding include the Ewing Presbyterian Church, also known as the 1867 Sanctuary at Ewing, the Hinchliffe Stadium in Paterson, one of three existing stadiums associated with the Negro League baseball games, and the 1759 Vought House in Clinton.
