Significant survival: Little building which withstood 1997 tornado

The rest of the story is almost a 'that our flag was still there' moment. The little building, itself, was a symbol our Democray - it was then the polling place for the Cane Valley precinct

Cathy Luttrell writes:
To the best of my memory, the residents of Cane Valley used this building for voting purposes. I'm sure many people can remember standing in line to get in that little space to cast their vote. It was used up until the time our precinct pollin place was finally moved to town, to Trinity United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall. There, finally we had heat and air conditioning and bathrooms available (only a port-a-potty was available near the little building) and finally, we didn't have to stand outside in the cold or rain. - Cathy Luttrell
