Frostburg in Allegany County, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
St. Michael's Parish Hall
Erected in 1912, the St. Michaels' Parish Hall served the members of St. Michaels' Church and the Frostburg Community for the past 100 years. As the St. Michael parish continued to grow at the end of the 19th century, a school was added in 1891. The Parish Hall followed in 1912 during the tenure of Rev. Stephen J. Clarke The Hall served numerous functions as the school gym and a venue for basketball games, plays, dances, dinners and musical entertainment for the parish and local community.
The Hall was built on the former location of the original cemetery behind the church. The new cemetery on Mount Pleasant Street was opened in the last two decades of the 1800's.
The building was condemned in 2014 and the City of Frostburg purchased the property from the Archdiocese of Baltimore. The City was able to develop the parking lot in 2015 with funding from the Department of Housing and Community Development Neighborhood Revitalization through the Strategic Demolition and Smart Growth Impact Fund.
All of the bricks used to line the sidewalk have been reused and are the century-old bricks from the Parish Hall. Photographic
Erected by City of Frostburg, Maryland.
