Medley's Dance and Bowl was built by Bud and Murlel Medley in the late 40s. The dance hall was upstairs and the bowling alley down. They sold the business in 1976. Many a memory can be recalled of the live bands and moonlit nights that secured this dancehall a place in local history. Many still say it was the best dance floor in the country!
The building burned down on the night of November 4, 2013 and the land remains vacant.
