Spillville Ballroom Owners Seek Funds To Replace Floor

SPILLVILLE, Iowa (AP) — Supporters of the Inwood Ballroom in Spillville are hoping to get public support to replace the floor of one of a few vintage ballrooms left in Iowa.

KWWL television reports the managers of the Inwood Ballroom say they must replace the 5,000-square-foot dining room floor. Years of wear and tear and three floods have caused the wooden floor to rot. Cost of the project is about $50,000.

Managers Wanda Cole and Mark and Ruth Kuhn are planning a fundraiser Nov. 1 at the ballroom.

Cole says the ballroom built in 1922 is one of only about 15 vintage ballrooms left in the state and it is worth keeping open.

The ballroom has a rich history having hosted music legends including Louis Armstrong, Lawrence Welk, and Glenn Miller
