OSCAR A. KINCAID HOME OF HISTORY DEDICATED

Completion of the restoration of the Oscar A. Kincaid Home of History was celebrated with a gala Dedication Ceremony at the historic homestead last month. The fes-tivities were led by Marilyn Terhune, President of the His-torical Society, who stated in dedicating the homestead: “I dedicate this home in memory of its last resident, and leader of many organizations – both political and civic – Oscar A. Kincaid, who among other things was mayor of Boonton Township. Let this restored homestead stand as a living testament of the man who wanted to see this come to fruition and I am happy and honored to say, on this Dedication Day, that it will stand for years to come in ser-vice to Boonton Township and the surrounding region.”
