About Kuser Hall and the Lakewood Historical Society: Kuser Hall, a two-story, 16,000 square-foot math and science classroom building was built in 1927. It is the last remaining building of five that was once the Newman School for Boys, a private boys’ high school from 1920-1942.
The first floor of Kuser Hall, now the Sheldon Wolpin Historical Museum, has been restored to include six galleries that will display some of the vast museum collection of memorabilia and artifacts. Some of the current projects include renovating the bathrooms, building a handicapped ramp, installing a HVAC system, and landscaping.
