Description

According to the 1934 town report, the Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA) was involved in “Constructing a dam back of the Grange Hall [Victor Grange #49] at Fairfield Center, to make an auxiliary water supply for the fire department.”

During a site visit, an older gentleman at the grange hall did remember a fire pond in the back, before the current highway 139 was built in the 1960s. Further investigation at the site revealed the concrete pipe that regulated the water in the pond.
