Did you know?

Did you know that the first meeting to organize a volunteer fire company was held on Jan. 3, 1935?

The first fire hall was rented in 1935 and then bought in 1938. It was used until 1948, and then it was sold to the Town of Clear Spring. It was located where the Town Hall now stands.
