"26 - Orange Hall"

C. 1940 photo of the interior of Orange Hall, located at 72 East Center Street. Anyone know the people in the picture? The writing on the lectern: Faith, Hope, & Charity. The Loyal Orange Lodge, an Irish fraternal organization, still operates Orange Hall and like other fraternal organizations with large buildings, helps defray its costs by renting out the hall for events.

I have other paper work from the Lodge, and pictures. When my cousin Dick Jenkins comes up this fall we plan to share with you what paper work I have."
