Parker Homestead Hosting Antique Car Show

LITTLE SILVER: The following is a press release from Parker Homestead:

The Parker Homestead-1665, one of the oldest homes in America, and the Antique Motoring Club of Monmouth County will host an Antique Car Show on Sunday, Sept. 18 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. (Rain Date Sunday, Sept. 25.)

The event is free to the public, although donations to Parker Homestead, a 501 C 3 not-for-profit organization are appreciated.

The charming Homestead was settled by brothers Joseph and Peter Parker in 1665 and remained in family hands for 330 years and eight generations until 1995, when Julia Parker died and deeded the property to the borough of Little Silver. Julia Parker stipulated that the homestead be preserved as a historic landmark and used for historic educational purposes.

The Homestead is on the New Jersey Register of Historic Places and the National Register of Historic Places. The Parker Homestead is considered one of the oldest dwellings still standing in New Jersey. The Parker Homestead-1665 Inc. received its charitable 501 C 3 designation in 2014 and work has been underway to preserve the homestead.

Restoration to the first floor of the home is nearly complete while renovations and stabilization work has recently been completed to the three barns.
