In the Month of May, Lakewood’s Historic Preservation Commission (LHPC) celebrated Archeology and Historic Preservation Month by offering a scavenger hunt at Heritage Lakewood Belmar Park. Congratulations to Elizabeth Burczyk, Janice and Holly Beecher, and Melissa Link for being randomly selected to receive a prize from Heritage Lakewood Belmar Park.
The LHPC thanks those who participated in the month long scavenger hunt. The scavenger hunt featured architectural artifacts found on historic buildings located in Heritage Lakewood Belmar Park. Some of these historic elements can also be found in older neighborhoods throughout Lakewood!
