Club 8/ Kiran Naiksatam

Club 8 in Hightstown, NJ.

Club 8 is named after the 8 founding members. President Louis Greenwood, Secretary Charles Parrish, Treasurer Richard Parrish, Frank Jordan, Jake Robinson, Wes Gregory, Louis Bowman, and George Howard. This quickly became a pub and meeting point for the black community. WWII Veterans would meet here and the black community would meet to organize social events such as easter egg hunts. Eventually it became a restaurant/bar and is visited mostly by black locals.
