Lassen Landmark is Missing
September 21, 1942

A Standish landmark is rapidly disappearing this week, as workmen wreck Pringle Hall, one of the first buildings erected in that community. Built by the late James Pringle about 1898, the structure was the center of many day activities of the area.

Housing Phillip’s Mercantile store on the ground floor, the second story hall was used for dancing on week days, and for church and Sunday school on Sundays. Sometime later, the Frank Wrede hotel was attached to the Pringle building.

Replacing Phillips’ store later was a branch of the Bank of Lassen County, while the upstairs hall continued to be used for dances and lodge activates, replacing church services which moved to an edifice of their own.
