Did you know?
Did you know that during World War I, Clear Spring had a community room that provided a place of recreation for soldiers that were stationed at the Clear Spring Proving Grounds? They canned many quarts of vegetables and fruits that were sent to various camps for soldiers. The room was also used for letter writing, reading and playing games.
