DescriptionLocated at the 3000 block of N Adams St in the village of Averyville, the Averyville Village Hall was where most entertainment took place. This photograph was taken in 1918 with many Averyville residents gathered outside the building, and there are flags and some sort of a banner on the outside of the building. The building is three stories with a bell tower and at least one chimney. Some of the people outside are holding instruments which suggests some sort of a celebratory gathering. There is a sign in the window that advertises Liberty Bonds. This image can be found in Ray Brian's Pictorial History of Peoria Amusements, Book One.
