Christine Schiess, chairwoman of the Brick Township Historic Preservation Commission presented the 2016 Historic Preservation award at the December 20th township council meeting.
Each year, the commission honors a structure in the township that has remained true to its original construction. The award was presented to Glen Campbell owners of a Kingfisher Cove log cabin.
Campbell calls his home ‘Serendipity’. The home was built in 1942 out of logs that were cleared from the construction of the Ocean County Airport (sometimes called the Osbornville airport) which was once located in Osbornville. An addition was built on the home in 1947, also using airport logs. Many log cabins in the area were built from logs of trees cut down for the airfield, but according to Schiess, most have been remodeled or demolished.
