SPRING GROVE – Necktie socials, fiddlers contests and welcome home dances have been held at the 100-plus-years-old Old Town Hall.

Just beyond the walls, there were bank robberies and house-drawn funeral processions.

Storyteller Rich Tobiasz will tell the stories that the Old Town Hall witnessed, and the Georgia Rae Family Band will reenact a fiddlers contest.

The free performance will start at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 21, at Old Town Hall, 1917 Main St. in Spring Grove.

Light refreshments will be served, and historical photos of Spring Grove will be displayed.
