KENILWORTH, NJ – The Kenilworth Historical Society is teaming up with the Blackthorn Restaurant & Irish Pub to host a benefit for the Oswald J. Nitschke House in Kenilworth.

Any patron who dines at Blackthorn between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. from May 1 to May 4 can present the featured flyer and the restaurant will donate $15 from the bill to the Kenilworth Historical Society, according to Shirley Maxwell, a member of the Historical Society.

The restaurant donations will help “defray the cost of an elevator that makes the Oswald J. Nitschke House ‘living history’ museum and cultural arts center fully accessible,” Maxwell said.

Furthermore, participants in the four-day benefit will be eligible to win a $50 gift card to the restaurant from drawings that will be held nightly.

According to the Kenilworth Historical Society website, “The Oswald Nitschke House was constructed in 1880 as a wood framed farmhouse. It was occupied by Nitschke, a German immigrant and three-term mayor who supported Kenilworth's incorporation in 1907. The building’s evolution shows the changes and immigrant influences during the development of the area.”

To obtain a flier or inquire about the event itself, call 908-709-0434 or 908-709-0391.
