Golden Slipper
Highway 2 at Middle Road
This large frame dance hall was opened on Highway 2 near the Fingerboard in July 1926 under the name of the Red Moon. The following year it was re-opened under new management as the Grand Gardens and the hall was enlarged and other amenities were added such as a parking lot and service station. This successful business continued to operate until 1931 when the business was leased by James Wood, who changed the name to the Golden Slipper. The Slipper burned in 1949, was rebuilt in 1950 and reopened as the Golden Slipper Motel. It burned again in 1962 and was not rebuilt. ~ Anita Scouten Martin
