Significance: The New Jersey Memorial Home is emblematic of the State of New Jersey's efforts to provide for its veterans. New Jersey has continuously provided benefits to resident veterans since shortly after the end of the Civil War. Originally known as the New Jersey Home for Disabled Soldiers, Sailors or Marines and Their Wives, the New Jersey Memorial Home was the third veterans' home established in New Jersey. The Vineland facility in 1900, in response to the increasing number of aging Civil War veterans who required medical and long-term care facilities, as well as to an influx of Spanish-American war veterans. The facility has functioned as a veterans' home continuously since its opening.
