 Friendship Hall, Cracker Hollow

Construction on Friendship Hall, which was set back from Bowdoin Street, between the corner of Geneva Avenue and Blakeville Street, was started in 1844, and the building was dedicated January 22, 1845 by Norfolk Lodge No. 48, I.O.O.F., which met there for fifty years. Many other societies, social, political and fraternal gathered here during the last half of the nineteenth century. About 1915 the old structure was torn down to make room for a garage.
