Long Description:
I am not finding much about this Eagles Aerie after their move from Turner Hall (see waymark WM10JVB - - LINK ). This building could have been available during the time of their move 1935 to 1948 from Turner Hall. This Aerie has a facebook page - - LINK - no details on the page and it hasn't really been updated since 2011.
