SOUTH AMBOY—A South Amboy resident pointed out that the old brick building on the corner of First and Stockton streets still shows a K of P Hall plaque on the top center of the structure. It is not very readable, but can still be seen. It stands for Knights of Pythias. It is where that organization and the Seneca Tribe of the Improved Order of Red Men, No. 23 met in the 1800s. Later the building was home to the accounting office of Richard Servis, Galaxy Packaging Co. and Johnson Control. My contributor told me the building is now used for storage.
Another South Amboy resident provided me with information on the 1959 graduating class St. Mary’s High School. Commencement exercises took place in St. Mary’s Church on June 7, 1959.
