Inscription. On May 7, 1895 Ezra and Sarah Cray Reed deeded 1/4 acre to the town for the town hall site. The original town hall was erected at a cost of $400.00 and was destroyed by fire sparked by "firing up" a steam roller kept in a nearby shed. The replacement was built at a cost of $1350.00 in 1929, and served the town until August 1980.
