Just a couple of inches separates the Laskay Hall from its new concrete block foundation at the King Heritage & Cultural Centre in Kinghorn, just east of Jane Street on the King Road. The steel beams that supported the hall on its move to its new site will be withdrawn shortly and the two structures will unite and become one. The new basement will be utilized almost immediately for storage while the main floor will receive some utilities servicing and interior refurbishment before being put into use. Ultimately, the hall is to have a wraparound deck to enhance its usefulness. A most significant piece of King Township's history has been secured for another century hopefully and for the use of generations of citizens to come.
