Playful Spirits Make Mischief at Elizabeth Town Hall

Vickie Hooper and Ray Brown know something is going on, they just don’t know exactly what it is.


The two grew up in the 1960s in the village of Elizabeth, an isolated sawmill community once owned by the Industrial Lumber Company, or just “The Industrial” as it was called.


They describe pleasant, tranquil childhoods in what Brown characterizes as a “front porch” town where there was no internet and no video games and people would spend the afternoons sitting on their stoops and chatting with the neighbors.
