Ward Memorial Hall
Posted November 19, 2020, by J.R. Manning (aurapaint [at] gmail [dot] com)

The group called Save the Soldiers Home has posted a fascinating article about the Ward Theater. It is one of the beautiful buildings at the Old Soldiers Home in Wood, Wisconsin and is also one that is greatly endangered. The article shares the history of the Ward Theater and includes some great photos of the interior.

I have posted a link to the article on the Ward Theater page.
