$10,000 Building for Milltown

Milltown Lodge to Construct and Provide a Hall for Public Meetings

The Wickatunk Tribe, No. 135, I.O.R.M. of Milltown, is planning to erect a hall and lodge room at the corner of Main and Ford streets in Milltown. The proposed structure, measuring 36×60 feet, is set to be a handsome addition to the town, equipped with the latest improvements, and estimated to cost about $10,000.

The ground floor will accommodate two stores. The second floor is designated for the upper sporting class of Milltown, while the top floor will house the lodge rooms and provide space for public meetings. The community of Milltown has long felt the need for a large hall, and this building aims to fulfill that need.

With 155 members and $7,000 in the treasury, the order’s prospects are very favorable.
