Quite a Social Place
—Josephine Mayo, former Appalachian Club Member
The Appalachian Club hosted annual gatherings on the Fourth of July and Labor Day. Other social activities included card games, board games, bingo, and weekly dances — accompanied by the jukebox, an orchestra, or a live band comprised of the members’ children. This photo, taken ca. 1917, shows club members on the porch of the original clubhouse.
