Back in the day: Turners of Monroe: Part 2
This photo of the Monroe’s Company H was taken in April 1898 and shows how beautiful the inside of the original Turner Hall was. This was at a farewell event for the men before they left for the Spanish-American War, where they had been “treated to a feast of music and a fine spread of good things to eat at their armory in Turner hall.”
The cornerstone for the first Turner Hall in Monroe was laid at 2:00 p.m. on April 27, 1868 with a large crowd present. H. Medberry made a short speech explaining the objectives of the organization, the purpose of the new hall, and the prospects of its early completion.
