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
