Edwardsville Township Supervisor Frank Miles presents Jenn Walta and Mary Westerhold of the Madison County Historical Society with items from the Hays Mallory Community Building.
EDWARDSVILLE – Edwardsville Township Supervisor Frank Miles recently presented Jenn Walta and Mary Westerhold of the Madison County Historical Society with several items from the Hays Mallory Community Building, 216 Crane St.
“We found several items of historical significance in the building and felt the Madison County Historical Society would be the best steward of these items,” Miles said.
Items presented to the Historical Society include: a Kodak Pageant Sound Projector, purchased in 1973 from Schwartz Drug Store in Edwardsville; a Magnavox turntable and assorted vinyl records, Strombang Carlson amplifier/equalizer and photos from activities at the Community Building.
The Hays Mallory Community Building was closed in 2014 after the Board of Trustees of Edwardsville Township requested a commercial inspection and code inspection of the property. Both inspections found imminent life-safety code violations that required the building to be closed for public use.
“The township is considering the future use of the site, along with the location of the Town Hall,” Miles said. “We have outgrown that space and are looking at our options for expansion and relocation.”
Edwardsville Township is composed of the city of Edwardsville, village of Glen Carbon and unincorporated areas just outside of these two municipalities. The Township Supervisor’s office is located at 300 West Park in Edwardsville and is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Monday and Friday and from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
