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.”
