Sanford in Midland County, Michigan — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
This town hall was used by elected officials to hold meetings and provided for the needs of the area. The Town Hall was built in 1910 for around $300.00. While in existence in the late 1960's and 1970's, the Sanford police department also used this town hall as their office.
Eventually the town hall meetings were moved to the old McNett School Building on West River road and the town hall sat unused. It was moved to the Museum grounds from its location on Center Street in Sanford in 1983.
