DAY 080 Schyler and Scott Wiecek photographed exclusively for the 100 Men Hall People Project (100MHPP).
Scott heard about it when Schyler came down to visit because her grandmother told us about it. She was born and raised here. Don’t think she had the chance to come here; she would go dancing at Century Hall. The first time was for the David Baria event to see Cedric Burnside. We were so excited to come in here. I didn’t know what it looked like and so it was exciting to come in. I just love that it hasn’t been demolished. I hate that when people come into a city and tear down old things to build new things. Scott said Schyler’s grandmother explained that this was a vital point of interest for the whole community and that they had national entertainers come through and drew quite a crowd. It’s like our little secret gem. We’re grateful the Hall is open again.
