description

Summary

Significance: In the early twentieth century the United Mine Workers of America, Superior Local constructed the Superior Union Hall. It was originally built to serve both the Union and the community. The building contained both a stage and a dance floor on the second floor. This served the people in the coal mining town of Superior as a place to assemble for cultural, political, and social events. It was one of the largest assembly halls in the town and became a community center. Unlike other assembly halls at Superior, this building was not owned by the coal company. It served as a focal point for both the Superior and South Superior communities.
