New Town Hall & School Building
Dedicated December 31, 1879
Construction Costs $3,945.00
Trustees: E.H. Reed, O.D. Pomeroy,
Builder: Robert W. Henry
On firm foundation laid, In stateliness arrayed
Welcome New Hall!
Which we now dedicate, To uses good and great
Approved by all.
A princely edifice, Yet plain in style as this
Speaks well for you,
Who love not vain displays, And keep as good highways
As one e'er know.
Its owners such around. As in the townships bound
Hold legal share.
Their money, here well spent, Had bought a good per cent.
For this none care.
Who welcome to their town, Her ornament and crown.
And well unite
In feeling a just pride, That here is typified
A beacon light.
From Rev. O.W. White's dedication poem.
Rededicated December 31, 2008
Thomas P. Perciak, Mayor
