The once-busy Knights of Columbus hall on Main Street in Johnson City has been quiet over the last several years.

The building at 126 Main Street opened its doors nearly 60 years ago - in the spring of 1964.

The hall was constructed just behind a large eight-room home the Knights of Columbus acquired in 1946 to serve as its clubhouse.

The old house was torn down after the new building was completed to provide space for parking just off Main Street.

The hall hosted countless receptions, meetings and parties for more than five decades. For many years, the place drew large crowds for its Bingo nights.

The hall also served as a temporary Johnson City senior center for a time.

As membership in the Father Ambrose Dwyer Council declined, fewer events were held at the site.

The property was acquired by long-time council member Daniel Gregoris in 2020. At one point, he considered the possibility of doing something new with the site. Now, he's interested in finding a buyer who might have a vision to bring the old hall back to life.
