EAGLE SCOUT PROJECT,
BOROUGH OF FANWOOD TOWN HALL
Eagle Scout Jack Keating sought funding to create a monument commemorating this Revolutionary War site noted in NJ history and State of New Jersey Historical archives. According to these archives, General George Washington and his troops visited this Fanwood site for a rest on their way to Washington Rock. You can visit this site which is located in front of Borough of Fanwood Town Hall.
We are proud to have helped Jack complete his Eagle Scout project commemorating Fanwood as a historic Revolutionary War site.
