Sagola Clubhouse, Sagola, Michigan

Sagola Clubhouse, Sagola, ca. 1918-1930: Built by the Northern Sawmill Company, the Sagola Clubhouse was erected on the site formerly occupied by Mayotte’s Saloon in the early 1920s. The saloon building was divided into two parts by the construction crew. The first section was moved slightly west of its original location and was later used as a community building with an upstairs apartment. The second section was moved to the southeast corner of Channing Street and Second Street and used as a residence. The new clubhouse soon became the center of community activity. Inside there was a pool room equipped with three pool tables and a billiard table, a card room and a dairy bar where children could get an ice cream cone or a soda. There was also one large room used for basketball games, movies and dances. [William J.
