Use of halls and meeting rooms in the Freeland area for various purposes – social, cultural, political, athletic, religious, music, theatric, civic – goes back to our earliest days. This page looks at a number of halls and meeting rooms in Freeland, and also a few halls in South Heberton, Jeddo, Drifton, and the Y.M.C.A. in Sandy Run. Sadly we don’t have pictures of most of them, but at least we have some information about most of them. If you can share additional information or images for this page, please let me know.
