Inscription.  The large porch on Town Hall was also given the same name as the cabin. Guests liked the informal gatherings held here when mild weather permitted. The babble of Hemlock Run encouraged everyone to join in the conversations, discussions, and debates. It was indeed the “townhall” of the camp, where everybody could express his opinions.
 
Erected by National Park Service.
