Built in 1886 as the Raycraft Dance Hall (complete with maple floors), this structure was purchased from Annie Raycraft in 1941 by the Town of Genoa. It is one of the Town's oldest buildings. Repairs and renovations have been made over the years with the help of community-donated labor. The porch was added in 1977 and the bar, originally from the old Globe Saloon in Carson City, was installed in 1984. A commercial style kitchen is located adjacent to the Town Hall. I think that the Candy Dance Candy is still made here.
The Genoa Candy Dance was held in the Town Hall starting in 1919 and has since outgrown the Town Hall's 260 person capacity. Many other community events and meetings are still held in the hall. I was here most recently listing to Cowboy Poetry, watching my Mother-In-Law unofficially oversee the goings on, and knowing that her daughter might eventually take over!
