NEW EXHIBIT - 100 Years of Fire-fighting - the Story of the Oakhurst Fire Department
A new exhibit opens Sunday, April 7, from 1 to 4, at the Eden Woolley House, 703 Deal Road, Ocean Township. It celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Oakhurst Fire Department. For the occasion—and to show how much fire-fighting has changed—the Department is bringing along its original hand-drawn hose cart from 1913 and an up-to-date fire truck from its current fleet. Inside the museum, a multi-media exhibit traces the history of fire-fighting and the local fire company through photos and artifacts. Firemen will be on hand to answer questions and show off the equipment. Admission is free, children are welcome, and homemade refreshments will be served. The exhibit remains through the summer.
