return to Tollhouse Series 9 Index
This is a good picture of the "rec hall" in Tollhouse taken by Achilles Mudge. Ed McMurtry once told me of a boxing match held in this building against a boxing team from Clovis. He said there was a large crowd, standing room only, and that the local boys did well against the "big city" boys. If the mountain boys could all box as well as Ed and his brothers then the Clovis boys were in trouble. This was the kind of use the hall hosted regularly. It was either torn or burned down in the 1940's.
