 Did you know?

Did you know that during World War I, Clear Spring had a community room, which served as a place where local soldiers could come and unwind? After the war, the Clear Spring Library was open there. All of this was run by volunteers, and funded by suppers and plays put on by the Masks and Whigs Club.
