PIONEER HALL AND LIBRARY ASSOCIATION. 



At a meeting of Sacramento Pioneers held on the 
i8th day of January, 1868, at their rooms, it was 
unanimously resolved to proceed to the election of 
five Directors for the purpose of incorporating the 
Hall and Library Association. The election resulted 
in the choice of I. N. Hoag, N. L. Drew, James 
McClatchy, G. J. Phelan, and N. D. Goodell, with 
a capital stock of ten thousand dollars, divided into 
four hundred shares, at twenty five dollars per share 
to be held only by the society and individual mem- 
bers thereof. 

The association was incorporated on the 21st day 
of January, 1868, for the purpose of erecting a hail, 
to be dedicated to the uses and purposes of the 
Sacramento Society of California Pioneers. 

On the 29th day of June, 1868, the association 
commenced the erection of a building upon a site 
selected for that purpose on the east side of Seventh 
Street, between J and K Streets, under the super- 
intendence of N. D. Goodell, architect, and was 
completed in November of the same year, at a cost 
of fourteen thousand dollars, including lot. The 
society held at that date forty-six shares of its capi- 
tal stock. On the 17th of June, 1871, the society 
had increased its stock to two hundred shares; and
