Klinkhart Hall has played a part in the life of Sharon Springs for well over a century, first as a hardware store and opera house, then as a Masonic Hall and a movie theater. And, always, as a place where the community gathered. Soon, it will be that again.
Here are some glimpses into the past of Klinkhart Hall that can give us an idea of what such a gathering place meant to the people and the village of Sharon Springs in the past. It might also suggest what a “new” Klinkhart Hall can mean for our future, when it is once again the place “where art and community meet.”.
