demolition town hall

Welcome to Historic Galloway, The Current’s weekly feature that looks back through Galloway Township history. Each week we get a chance to learn or reminisce courtesy of Sarah Snow, librarian for the Galloway Township Historical Society, who shares information and early photos online and in print.


The sad remains of the Galloway Township Town Hall are being cleared away in this photo from 1983. An electrical fire started in the ceiling one night in July and destroyed the building while severely damaging the attached township library. The very active library was moved to the basement of Assumption Church in Pomona, but was soon incorporated into the county library system.
