Lakewood Historical Museum Finds New Home
Lakewood-After a three-year search, the Lakewood Historical Museum has found a home at Kuser Hall, 500 Country Club Drive. Kuser Hall is the last remaining building of five that was once the Newman School for Boys, a private boys’ high school from 1920-1942.
The Lakewood Historical Museum, which had been housed in the Princeton Avenue Building from 2005 – 2009, has a vast collection of Lakewood memorabilia and artifacts. Since the Princeton Avenue Building was sold, the collection has been in storage.
The Lakewood Historical Society has begun a fundraising campaign. All money will be used to restore Kuser Hall. Stanley Liptzin, president of the Lakewood Historical Society, said, “The goal of the Society is to make Kuser Hall one of the finest community museums in the country and a destination for tourists.”
The decision to lease the property, located in Pine Park came at the March 1st township council meeting.
People who would like to donate to the restoration of Kuser Hall or who have items they would like to donate the Lakewood Historical Museum should contact Sheldon Wolpin at 732-920-4550 between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
