The New Jersey Register of Historic Places is the official list of historic resources of local, state, and national interest in the U.S. state of New Jersey. The program is administered by the New Jersey's state historic preservation office within the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.

The register was established under the terms of the New Jersey Register of Historic Places Act of 1970. The New Jersey Register mirrors the National Register of Historic Places, and uses the same criteria for eligibility.

A number of individualistic dark stone and brick Queen Anne and Romanesque inspired dwellings line South Clinton Avenue (#266, #270). Stone of various hues and textures comprises the facade triptych at 42-46 (#268). This stonework is a counterpoint to Trenton’s more typical virtuoso brickwork. These homes, as well as the stone structures at 48-52 (#266, #267) were erected by Thomas H. Prior, a stone contractor. Remaining residential structures on East State Street include massive Second Empire (#281, #282, #284, #286), Colonial Revival (#285, #287), and Romanesque (#288) derived houses. Comparison of Second Empire houses in the area such as 29-91 Carroll Streets (#238), 47-61 Southard Street (#258), 17-17 (#272), 18-29 (#275), 28-54 (#277-278) Yard Avenue, 55 North Clinton Avenue (#301), and 506-508 and 528 East State Street (#281, #282), reveals the flexibility of this stylistic theme, utilized extensively in this generally elite “Railroad Age” neighborhood."
