Now, the town's board of selectmen has started to give the building a face lift. So far, one side of the former grange hall has been upgraded with paint and siding.
Addison Selectman Tom Baston said "I think it means quite a bit. You know, i played basketball up in here. I remember doing that and enjoyed it. And i like old buildings."
The town hall is a meeting place for many civic groups as well as a favorite spot for weddings.
Plans are being discussed as to whether an addition should be added to the rear of the building.
