  LAKEHURST – The Borough of Lakehurst Historical Society is looking for a few women and men to aid in the operation of the Museum. The Museum is located in the old St. John’s Church on Center St. in Lakehurst. Built in 1874 by and for the Irish railroad workers in what was called Manchester Village, it was the first Catholic church in Ocean County.

  The Museum will be open Wednesdays and Sundays, 12:30 to 3 p.m. starting June 6. The Society meets once a month on the third Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Lakehurst Community Center, across the street from the Museum.

  Anyone with an interest in local history are welcome. For more information, contact Bill Schmidt at 732-575-6904.
