Did you know?

Did you know that on Jan. 3, 1935, a meeting was held to organize a fire company for the town of Clear Spring?  The first fire hall was rented from 1935 until it was bought in 1938.

The fire hall was situated where the town hall now stands. It was used as a fire hall until 1948, when it was sold to the Town of Clear Spring.
