Did you know?

The Masks and Whigs Club put on plays that were so well received that they even traveled to other towns to perform - Hancock, Middletown, McConnellsburg and Mercersburg to name a few.

They had to travel by "Jitney" and "open-truck" until later during 1920 when more local people owned automobiles.
