The Kenilworth Historical Society will host a Soup-Tasting event on Tues., March 21, 2017, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., in the Kenilworth Seniors’ Center, 526 Boulevard, Kenilworth, N.J. This popular event — “Soup’s On” – will give participants the opportunity to taste a variety of favorite soups from local eateries and others, plus assorted breads and desserts.

Proceeds from “Soup’s On” will benefit the Kenilworth Historical Society’s Oswald J. Nitschke House (c. 1880) “living history” museum and cultural arts center by helping defray the cost of an elevator that makes all levels of the newly restored site fully accessible to everyone.
