B-W Trivia: Which Club Is This?
We will reveal the answer on Monday.
The Baldwin-Whitehall Patch has partnered with the Baldwin Historical Society to bring you a weekly trivia question that delves into our area's colorful past.
Pat Lombardi and Patty Woehler, co-presidents of the society, generously write the questions and provide the pictures.
Here is this week's question:
This building was originally owned by John A. Englert, who sold the property to the Sick Benefit Association and Singing Society in then-Baldwin Township in 1907.
The purpose of the society at that time was to provide funding for its members, to assist in times of sickness and disability and to aid members' families in case of death.
Known as a dance/singers hall, many Saturday night dances were held here into the 1950s.
Today, the society/club allows only members through its doors, and membership is at approximately 200 people.
The club boasts two original tables that were used to play the card game sixty-six. The tables are square like a typical cards table, and at the top of each leg is a slot to hold a drink.
The club also has two pool tables that date back to 1922.
What is the name of this club/society now, and where is it located?
