  • Woods Landing Dance Hall



    Read All About It:

    The Woods Landing Dance Hall, constructed in 1932, is important for its association with a locally significant individual named Mayme Lewellen Lestum, who owned and operated the property. It is significant as a local gathering place not only for dances, but smorgasbord, blood drives, fund raisers, weddings and other important occasions. It is also a stopping place for tourists.

    It is associated with the tie hack industry which boomed in response to the railroad’s need for lumber, and brought large numbers of Swedish immigrants into the area. The Dance Hall also embodies distinctive characteristics of type, period, and method of construction which exemplify the unusual architectural contributions of the Swedish immigrants. The dance hall features a dance floor mounted on 24 box car springs, the only one known of in the state.
