If operating as Trenton's historic areas do (I own a home in that district) The commissions dont care what you do inside but just about everything that shows from the street requires review and approval. (yes, even trim painting colors must be approved) I had to replace windows with those that matched old. (wooden, though I was able to get energy efficient double pane replacements)

Start with, click "Commissions," click "Historic Preservation." Flemington has a wealth of beautiful restored historic buildings in diverse styles. If you need an architect specialising in that, I'd be happy to share the name.

If it's a designated historic property or one that you fell should be or you want it to be or simply want to make sure things are done "to period" check with the Historic Commission
Here is a copy paste from part of that page;

Historic Preservation

The Borough of Flemington's Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) was established in accordance with Section 1404 of the Borough of Flemington Zoning Ordinance. The HPC is an advisory body which encourages the retention and repair of the design elements for all historic land marked or district buildings, and ensures that changes in exterior appearance through alteration, demolition, new construction/addition or replacement are accomplished with respect and consideration for the building and its environment.Members of the HPC, along with Flemington homeowners and other stakeholders, recently developed guidelines for historic preservation. The Guidelines are available for review at Borough Hall. Copies are available for purchase for $15.00.The HPC meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM at Borough Hall. A copy of the Application for Flemington Historic Preservation Commission review can be located under Documents -> Forms menu item. The commission asks that the applicant fill out the application and attach drawings, current color photos, and a list of materials to be used. Completed applications should be submitted by the first Friday of the month the meeting is scheduled.

ENJOY! Make sure to take a ton of pictures for yourself as before and after.
