Lanigan Town Hall – 1909

The hall was considered to be quite a place as it housed the Dance Hall and Theater upstairs. It was built in 1909 and contained the morgue, jail, library, council chambers and fire hall – all downstairs.

It had a large bell on top which rang the curfew time (9:00 p.m.) each evening. There was a town policeman who saw to it that the curfew was enforced.

The Town Hall was torn down to make room for a new facility in the early ’50’s.
