- Underwood City Hall

Underwood City Hall, for many decades, served the community as a 'Gathering Place': a place for special events, food sales, dinners, Traveling Minstrel Shows, roller skating, dances, etc.

Behind, and attached to the Hall was the Underwood Volunteer Fire Department and at the very back was the city jail built of stone.

The Hall burned down a few years ago, but memories of times past will live on for many of us.
