Elmira Hall

 

     The Elmira Hall was built in the 1920s for the Women's Institute by the men in the community. The hall was used for meetings, local concerts, dances, silent movies and ice cream socials. A very memorable event that took place at the Elmira hall was, the “Welcome Home Party” for the late war hero Daniel MacDonald; who in later years became the Federal Minister of Veteran’s Affairs. In 1972-1973 the hall was sold to Ernest Morrow. Ernest had paid to turn the structure into a farm building; having the foundation set by Louis Campbell, and the rest of the job was completed by Callum MacLean and Everett Coffin.
