Stony Creek's Square Dancing Heritage

Passage Minutes
Square Dance at the Stony Creek Inn – Lori Leeman


In 1941, dance instructor and author “Allemande” Al Muller surprised readers of his book by announcing that the only public dancing permitted in the small town of Stony Creek, New York was square dancing. While dancehalls around the nation were filled with patrons doing the foxtrot, swing, or the jitterbug, people were arriving from all around to attend Stony Creek square dances, held at the local grange, O’Neils, and the Stony Creek Inn.
