PHOTOS: Historic Car Show Benefits Lakewood Historical Museum

blPHOTOS: The first-ever “Sheldon Wolpin Memorial Car Show” fundraiser was held Sunday at Pine Park, benefitting the Sheldon Wolpin Lakewood Heritage Museum – and specifically Kuser Hall – at Lakewood’s Pine Park.

Attendees enjoyed a display of old vehicles, as well as displays by the Ocean County Society of Model Railroaders; P. B. A. Local #71 and LPD’s S.R.T. (Special Response Team).

Kuser Hall, a two-story, 16,000 square-foot math and science classroom building was built in 1927. It is the last remaining building of five that was once the Newman School for Boys, a private boys’ high school from 1920-1942.

The Historical Society has been renovating the building for more than a year. Renovations include, repairing the roof, replacing more than 465 broken window panes, repairing window wells on the exterior of the building, and installing protective screening on all windows.

The first floor of Kuser Hall, now the Sheldon Wolpin Historical Museum, has been restored to include six galleries that will display some of the vast museum collection of memorabilia and artifacts. Some of the current projects include renovating the bathrooms, building a handicapped ramp, installing a HVAC system, and landscaping.

The event was sponsored by the Lakewood Historical Society and the Lakewood Heritage Commission are sponsoring the car show.
